Structural design magic for The Alchemist

Thomasons has contributed structural design expertise to a new landmark building at Manchester’s waterfront destination MediaCityUK.

The striking building is sited on a bridge that links MediaCityUK with The Lowry. Designed by Reid Architects as a ‘visual icon’, it is clad in gold metal creating the impression of a beacon. The elevation facing the water is made entirely of glass which, together with the bar terrace that projects out over the canal, offers panoramic views across the water.

The £1.7m scheme has recently been completed and is now undergoing a fit-out in preparation for the opening of The Alchemist, a cocktail bar and restaurant, at the end of August.
