Complete Demolition was appointed by Interserve to undertake the sympathetic soft-strip and internal demolition works to The Corn Exchange. The impressive Grade II listed building is situated in the heart of Manchester’s City Centre. The building stands on Exchange Square opposite Selfridges, Harvey Nicholls, The Arndale Centre and The Printworks.
The site team carried out the internal soft-strip of the building which included protecting the listed staircase and tiled walls. Partition walls and suspended ceilings were removed to expose original listed features, as well as demolition of internal walls. Careful removal minimised any disturbance to the original features of the building. Project challenges included a tight programme and restrictions of vehicle movements due to the City Centre location.
