Arkwright House is located just off bustling Deansgate. It's a short walk from Salford Central station, and approximately a mile from Manchester Piccadilly station. Parking is available nearby.

Our multidisciplinary team has operated in Manchester for 20 years and works closely with our offices in Leeds, Chester, Newcastle. In June 2018 we relocated our 60-strong Manchester team to the penthouse of the recently refurbished Grade II listed Arkwright House in Parsonage Gardens. This new office space is creating new employment opportunities and widening the areas of expertise within our regional team.

We certainly feel Manchester is a great place to be and is a strategically important location for Ramboll. We are actively involved in the regeneration and development taking place in Manchester, and the wider Northern Powerhouse region:

  • Helping inward investors find an appropriate place to be in Manchester
  • Meeting future connectivity needs with transport infrastructure
  • Designing destinations for attracting and retaining talent
  • Delivering sustainable energy networks for communities
  • Invigorating the public realm - Civic and Historic, including Our Town Hall project
  • Supporting The Government’s Industrial Strategy in the North
  • Creating value for our clients through innovation and digitalisation
