Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester by Stephenson Bell

First Look: Stephenson Bell has received full planning approval for their new £30m school and masterplan for Chetham’s School of Music in the heart of Manchester

The scheme is approximately 10,000m² and comprises a new music teaching school, an academic school and a full orchestral auditorium.

Enabling works will start on site in September and the project is due for completion in mid 2011.

The new building will be constructed adjacent to the existing medieval buildings which house some parts of the school and the oldest public library in the world.
