Manchester Met seeks architect for new science faculty

  • Comment

Manchester Metropolitan University is on the hunt for an architect for its new 25,000m2 Faculty of Science and Engineering

Planned to complete in 2020 – the high-profile new faculty will replace the existing John Dalton West building, a greenhouse, car park and other out-buildings on the university’s All Saints Campus.

The new build project comes less than a year after the university won the RIBA Client of the Year award for its Stirling Prize-shortlisted Manchester School of Art by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

According to the contract notice: ‘The aim is to provide state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities within a world-class building with inclusive, uplifting and iconic architecture.’

‘Easily-adaptable engineering solutions’ are also required to help the university ‘achieve ambitious sustainability targets’ and reduce its carbon footprint.

A 500-seat auditorium, catering area, student academic services and facilities management department will furthermore be included in the new building.

Up to six teams will be shortlisted following an open prequalification round. The winning team will develop the scheme from RIBA Stage 0 to 7 and a separate project manager-led consultancy team is also being procured.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 18 May.
