Axis Tower, Manchester

Axis Tower is an iconic 27-story, 89m high, residential tower located in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Its central location offers convenient access to the city’s primary transport links, business district, famous shopping centre, and many other key attractions.

HansenFacades designed, manufactured and installed the external curtain walling as a unitised system. A unitised approach was chosen because of the logistical constraints on-site and to ensure rapid fixing on site.

Three types of aluminium composite cladding panels and ten types of high specification glass were used to provide varying levels of acoustic, thermal and solar performance.
