Client:University of Manchester
This project involved a number of linked works and phases to the Centrally Timetabled accommodation within the Simon Building.
Phase 1 was the conversion of redundant basements to lecture theatres (including the removal of structural columns) and the creation of a new E-Learning Suite on the sixth floor of the building, and included a new entrance to Brunswick Street.
Phase 2 involved the creation of new teaching spaces to redundant lab spaces, and a new external fire escape stair to accommodate increased occupancy on these floors.
The refurbishment required the creation of flexible learning spaces and procurement of varying furniture and fittings to provide differing and varied teaching spaces for students to trial.
