Smart TopBrewer coffee machine selected for “ultra-sustainable” Windmill Green in Manchester
Manchester's Most Sustainable Building
Dubbed the most sustainable building in Manchester, Windmill Green on Mount Street is the first multi-let building in the City to achieve an “Outstanding” BREEAM rating and is also said to be the most cycle-friendly building in Manchester.
The redevelopment was completed for real estate investment firm, FORE Partnership, providing 80,000sq ft of high quality office space in the Northern Powerhouse.
Windmill Green's TopBrewer
Community feel for shared breakout space
The building has a strong community feel with the lower floors dedicated to co-working. An impressive communal feature of the building is “The Pavillion” on the top floor designed by office interior specialists, Sheila Bird Group. This breakout space is open to everyone in the building and boasts a rooftop terrace with stunning panoramic views across Manchester’s skyline.
When choosing a premium coffee machine for the communal area, the iPad-controlled TopBrewer was the obvious choice to provide freshly-roasted coffee and other refreshing drinks in an innovative and streamlined way.
Smart coffee for a smart building
Windmill Green's TopBrewer and accessories are finished in matt black (one of the first of its kind in the UK) to complement the stylish interior. With the TopBrewer app, tenants can enjoy a personalised coffee whilst enjoying the fabulous Manchester views.
As well as its sustainability credentials, Windmill Green is also one of the smartest buildings in the country. It has recently been awarded a WiredScore of “Platinum” due to its excellent digital infrastructure. The smart and connected TopBrewer has its own cloud-management system called CoffeeCloud that provides access to realtime data, insights and alerts to make managing the coffee facilities hassle-free.
TopBrewer provides a wide range of barista-style, bean-to-cup beverages from a sleek swan neck tap, with the machine itself discreetly housed under the counter to provide a clutter-free service area.
Staff and visitors make drinks to their exact requirements through the iPad set into the worktop or through the app on their phone.
