Scanlans makes office move to Carvers Warehouse

Property management and surveying firm Scanlans has moved its Manchester base to Carvers Warehouse in the Piccadilly Basin area of the city centre

Property management and surveying firm Scanlans has moved its Manchester office to Carvers Warehouse in the Piccadilly Basin area of the city centre.

Scanlans has taken 1,534sq ft of space on the second floor of Town Centre Securities PLC’s (TCS) Grade II listed asset, which is one of the oldest surviving stone-built warehouses in the city centre.

The historic canalside building on Dale Street, on the fringe of the Northern Quarter, has a total of 22,000 sq ft of office space over four floors.

Built in 1806, Carvers Warehouse was transformed by property investment, development and car parking operator TCS into an office destination in 2008, with an additional refurbishment programme completed in 2020.


The building is home to businesses in sectors ranging from property and technology to fashion and engineering.

Alongside its prime office accommodation, Carvers Warehouse features breakout areas, communal areas with meeting pods, shared workspace, cycle storage and shower facilities, an on-site café/deli and parking.

Scanlans has relocated its Manchester team from Boulton House on Chorlton Street.

The firm, which also has offices in Birmingham and Leeds, provides property management services to residents, leaseholders, managing agents and investors across the north west, Yorkshire, the Midlands and further afield.

Alongside property management, Scanlans provides commercial and residential property valuations and surveys, fire risk assessments, expert witness, building surveying and LPA Receivership services.

Nationally, the firm achieved a milestone in 2022 as its property management portfolio reached 20,000 units across over 300 residential sites, from listed apartment blocks to new-build housing developments.

Scanlans partners Ian Magenis and Tony Mancini said: “The office space at Carvers Warehouse is top quality and we are excited to join the existing, established business community in the building and to welcome clients to our new Manchester home.

“Scanlans has a long, proud and rich heritage in Manchester and it’s great to be able to secure a new base for our team in this iconic building and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the regional market.

“Carvers Warehouse is a fantastic workspace and provides the opportunity for continued growth and development for the firm in the north west and beyond.”

Rob Thompson, asset manager at TCS, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Scanlans to the growing Carvers Warehouse business community.

“The office accommodation in the flourishing Piccadilly Basin is first-class and offers superb amenities for our occupiers.

“It suits the evolving needs of Scanlans perfectly and we are pleased to help the company find a base to further build its commitment and expansion into the Manchester market.”
