The University of Manchester is seeking a design team to deliver its £10 million expansion of the Manchester Museum
Planned to complete in 2020, the project will create a new 450m² temporary exhibitions gallery within the museum’s existing courtyard off Coupland Street.
Opened in 1888, the Alfred Waterhouse-designed Neo-Gothic museum displays items of archaeology, anthropology and natural history.
According to the contract notice: ‘The courtyard project seeks to transform Manchester Museum’s reach to increased and diversified audiences, and make a pivotal contribution to Manchester city-region’s economic, social and cultural renaissance at the heart of the emerging Northern Powerhouse.’
London-based ZMMA was appointed lead designer and contract administrator for the early stages of the project last summer.
The winner of the latest £450,000 contract will develop the project from RIBA Stages 4 to 7 once a Heritage Lottery Fund stage 2 bid is approved.
The deadline for applications is 5 May.
