Manchester Metropolitan University
Originally built in the 1960’s as a mixed use science/research building, John Dalton Tower was gutted and fully refurbished in 2004. The building was then extended via two new service risers on either end and with a new plantroom built on the roof, creating nine storeys of accommodation.
Internal remodelling of the building created large multi user laboratories, specialist dental laboratories, support areas, cold rooms, office accommodation and a large reception on the ground floor which connected through to other adjacent buildings. The building was heavily serviced and included central and individual fume extraction systems, specialist and medical gases throughout, central compressed air plant and central chilled water plant providing cooling to all areas via the main ventilation plant.
