University of Manchester obtains approval for new £350M engineering campus

WCN Editorial Team 6 Jun 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The University of Manchester has secured planning consent from Manchester City Council to develop a £350M engineering campus.

The Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), part of the university’s £1bn masterplan to create a world-leading campus, will bring together a multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific community and consolidate the university’s student campus around Oxford Road.

Mecanoo, an architecture firm responsible for Manchester’s HOME, has been appointed to the project.

Upon completion, the development is due to become home to the university’s four engineering schools and two research institutes from the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

Demolition on the site is currently in progress, and main construction works are scheduled to commence later in 2016. The development is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
