Property developer Ask Real Estate has agreed terms with BAM Construct UK to deliver the next phase of office development at First Street in Manchester City Centre.

Pension Insurance Corporation has invested £105m to forward fund the new 130,900 sq ft net zero in operation office.

Plot 9a is being brought forward by lead developer, Ask and its JV partner, The Richardson Family.

Building services specialist Briggs & Forrester is understood to be in line to deliver the MEP package on the project.

The building will have a BREEAM minimum rating of Excellent and is also one of the first offices in Manchester capable of achieving a minimum NABERS Design for Performance rating of 5.5* stars or above – the highest level of environmental performance in use.
