The Deansgate Square development is a large-scale landmark scheme in Manchester, delivered as part of the Great Jackson Street Development Framework. Consisting of four towers, it comprises 1,508 apartments, including penthouses with spectacular views. The scheme also contains a wellness centre, high-end office space, restaurants and other facilities. Its tallest tower, standing at 67 storeys and 201 metres high, is the second highest residential tower in the UK.

BLDA Consultancy undertook extensive daylight, sunlight and rights of light assessments in order to direct the design team in terms of finding a balance between meeting the daylight and sunlight criteria while also resolving issues surrounding rights of light. Through careful design, and following BLDA Consultancy’s advice, the scheme secured planning permission from Manchester City Council.
