Located in the heart of in the Ancoats Conservation Area in Manchester, Jactin House was built in 1905 by Central Hall Mission. The invention of the steam engine meant mills grew in size and could be grouped more closely, away from rivers. Ancoats proved a suitable location for larger steam powered mills and in turn the larger mills demanded larger numbers of workers. Jactin House provided accommodation for men working in what was the world’s first industrial estate.
The premises today is being converted into managed workspace on a flexible multi-let basis suitable for a range of business sizes interested in occupying space from 300sq.ft up to 40,000sq.ft. The project entails a high-quality refurbishment and alteration of the existing Victorian building, comprising a basement and four upper floors and a new five storey concrete framed extension.
