Manchester Cancer Research Centre
Designed by Wilson Mason Architects, the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) is a state of the art research facility, home to 150 scientists and 100 research and development staff.
The iconic public facing facility has been designed with an integrated environmental approach. With features such as 85% natural ventilation and rainwater harvesting, the project has earned an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.
Allgood were asked to supply an ironmongery package that could reflect the sustainable approach, whilst catering for the building’s high performance requirements.
With the MCRC being a partnership between specialist cancer hospital The Christie, Cancer Research UK and the University of Manchester, there is frequent traffic of users. It was therefore imperative that Allgood supplied an ironmongery package that would perform to the highest standard. The package was delivered in a co-ordinated stainless steel finish to match the clean aesthetic of the building’s interior. In addition, Modric lever and pull handles were fitted on the internal doors, providing a durable and high quality product that provides a ten year warranty.
All of the stainless steel door fittings supplied are manufactured from 62% recycled materials, of which 95% can be recycled at the end of the products life. Manufactured in our factory in Birmingham, the Modric products supplied enabled lower carbon emissions through a shorter supply chain, contributing to the ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating of the building.
