Orient House / Manchester, UK

SPV Group have recently completed the Flat roofing works at Orient House, Manchester.

Orient House is an iconic building in Manchester City Centre. It was built in 1914 and the The Manchester Pevsner Guide describes this former warehouse as “one of the most extravagant, six storeys with attics of white faience with a giant iconic colonnade.

The front elevation of the six-storey Orient House is profusely decorated in moulded faience of classical influence. The sides and rear elevations of the building provide the characteristics allowing Orient House to assume its position here as one of the earliest ‘modern’ buildings in Manchester.

Orient House is currently being upgraded both externally and internally with SPV also currently undertaking concrete repair works to the rear elevation. Once upgraded, the building will offer modern up to date student accommodation.
