The team at Regis are delighted to be supplying fasteners to FK Group for the façade of their No 2 St Peter’s Square project.
FK Group is nearing completion of the façade works on the prestigious development in the heart of Manchester City Centre.
The scheme is being delivered by main contractors Laing O’Rourke, who chose FK as their partner contractor to deliver the challenging build. Early involvement with the project team including the architects Simpson Hough, under the close scrutiny of façade consultant Buro Happold, was key.
Regis and FK Group have long enjoyed a fruitful relationship, for this project we supplied stainless steel self-drilling fasteners for the rain-screen brackets and façade carrier rails. Check out our fastener page on our website for our full range of fasteners here.
Managing Director at FK Group, Steve Hall has said:
“At FK Group strong relationships are the foundation of our business. They are at the heart of everything we do and a major factor of our ongoing success. Regis is one such example, having worked with our Directors for over 25 years, we have built up a strong trust and Regis has become an integral part of our supply chain.
The UK construction market is constantly seeking innovation and we are looked upon to constantly stay ahead of the curve and deliver new solutions. We listen and we turn to our trusted suppliers to keep us informed of innovations in order to meet the challenges and demands from within the market.
Regis is a highly adaptable business that truly understands what FK Group is striving to achieve for our clients. It demonstrates a commitment to working alongside us to ensure we are delivering innovative and sustainable projects. Regis has become a trusted partner.”
The £4.1m façade package had numerous challenges including the bespoke design, the city centre location and close proximity to the operating tram system.
FK’s early engagement was critical to the delivery and ultimately the success of the scheme, allowing substantial off-site fabrication and unitised construction methods which required close coordination with several partnering contractors to overcome the challenging logistical and high specification demands of the project.
2 St Peter’s Square will provide in excess of 5,000 sq ft of retail space and 161,000 sq ft of high quality, Grade A office space across 12 floors within what already looks a stunning building that more than enhances the ever-changing Manchester skyline.
