Supporting development in central Manchester

The core of James’ experience has been in major projects crucial to the development and regeneration of Manchester and its surrounding conurbations. For instance, he has worked in QS roles on the £140m Three60 development, a residential skyscraper in Manchester City Centre. Prior to that, he was apart of the £230m Elizabeth Tower & Victoria residence development in Manchester. In addition, the scheme consisted of 664 residential units across two multi-storey towers.

Following, encouraging the careers of young construction professionals is nothing new to Hargreaves. For 150 years, we have been at the forefront of HVAC engineering. Delivering to some of the UK’s most prestigious projects across Nuclear, Defence, Transport and Data business sectors. Our successful graduate recruitment and apprenticeship programmes have seen many of them develop from entry level roles into management positions and beyond evidently.

“I'm really excited that the Exyte Hargreaves Commercial team is continuing to develop. Being able to acquire the educated level and experience of people such as James speaks volumes for Hargreaves as a company, for example the types of HVAC, Smoke Ventilation and Manufacturing projects we're awarded and the future prospects. On behalf of the Commercial team and the wider Exyte family we welcome James and wish him all the best in his role.”
