Manchester Royal Exchange
Quadriga have recently completed a £1.35million project to restore the Grade II listed Royal Exchange in Manchester. Built in 1874 and used as a textile trading exchange, the building is rich with history. Remodelling took place in 1914 with much of the detailed stonework and masonry of the external elevations dating back to this time. Since then the building has undergone numerous modifications, in part due to the Manchester Blitz during the Second World War and then the Manchester bombing in 1996 which caused significant damage to the structure.
During the 10-month scheme, Quadriga sensitively restored the stonework, enhancing all four external elevations of this local landmark using materials and finishes in keeping with the original features, which is complemented with new feature lighting and signage
The existing retail arcade that links Cross Street with St. Ann’s Square has been respectfully refurbished. The arcade has benefited from new feature lighting, along with new tiled flooring, which incorporates the Manchester Royal Exchange logo and a modern ornate ceiling. Coatings have also been applied to shopfronts, offering an aesthetically pleasing, uniformed and light feel.
