Sheppard Robson nets Manchester bio-medical research project

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Sheppard Robson has landed the £21 million project to design a new bio-medical research centre for the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital

The 9,300m² scheme for developer Bruntwood and Manchester Science Parks (MSP) includes laboratory space and clinical testing in a new-build element and new offices and administrative facilities in a refurbished Grade II-listed Victorian building.

A glazed atrium will link the laboratories with the offices.

Tony O’Brien, partner at Sheppard Robson, said: ‘The project is set to be hugely important to the city centre in its capacity as a key aspect of the regeneration and development of the Manchester Corridor.’

‘We have produced a design that is both cutting edge and visually compelling, yet sympathetic to the original building’s Victorian façade.’
