£46 Million Arts Building Gets Started

The best scaffolders Lincoln has to offer will be essential in Manchester over the coming months as work starts on the city’s £46 million arts building.

The latest building for the Manchester Metropolitan University will be built on the corner or Oxford Road and Cavendish Street, and is the first project to be undertaken as part of a five-year plan to reform the city-centre campus of the University.

The building will take up a total of 12,400 m2 of development and is expected to be completed by 2020.

It will house the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and will appear on the site of the old Mable Tylecote Building, next to and behind the old town hall façade, which will be kept.

The building will include a 180-seat auditorium, in-house TV and radio studios and a new language entre. It will also house a new Manchester Writing School led by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, as well as a new poetry library.

Manchester is the site for significant construction and development due to the large number of Universities in the cities and around it. The University of Manchester has also got two ongoing developments at this point in time.

The University of Manchester is currently overseeing a £1 billion campus masterplan. The first part of which will be the University Green project which will see the gateway to the Oxford Road campus be reinvigorated with a new shopping and leisure centre, as well as hotels.
