Manchester’s Bauhaus becomes UK’s first refurbished building to be awarded WELL Gold status

Orchard Street Investment Management (‘Orchard Street’), the specialist commercial property investment manager, announces that its Bauhaus Office scheme, located between Manchester’s Spinngfields and St. John’s districts , has achieved a WELL Gold accreditation by sustainability and wellness certifier, the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The certification makes Bauhaus the only refurbished building in the UK to have received the accreditation, and just one of only three UK buildings in total, following its comprehensive upgrade by Orchard Street.

Orchard Street acquired Bauhaus in 2013, and subsequently completed a full refurbishment of the nine-storey building. This project focused on optimising the occupier experience both through improving the sustainability and wellbeing credentials of the asset, and creating a robust digital infrastructure platform, the latter of which led to the building being awarded a ‘Platinum’ certification for its digital connectivity by WiredScore.
