First Look: Sheppard Robson to design Hulme campus for MMU

Sheppard Robson has been chosen to design a community campus for Manchester Metropolitan University in Hulme, Manchester

The £120 million scheme will create a new home for the Institute of Education and the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care.

Ian Butler, managing partner at Sheppard Robson said:  ‘We are thrilled to have won the competitive tender for this hugely important project.  The community campus will have a dramatic impact upon Hulme, pushing forward regeneration plans in the area to create a vibrant hub that will benefit not only MMU students but, the community as a whole.’

The practice will be working with landscape architects Gillespies and engineering consultants AECOM on the project, which will deliver student accommodation, car parking, teach and research space and a major public square fronting Stretford Road.

Sheppard Robson has designed a number of existing university buildings including MMU’s Geoffrey Manton Building, opened by the Queen in 1996.
