MMU Business School

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is the architectural firm leading the development of a new Business School for the Manchester Metropolitan University. The school is projected to cost £ 54,000,000 and is due to be completed September 2011.

The 20,000 sq metre building will host a new faculty as well as facilities for 5,000 students and 250 staff including student services, catering, learning zones and IT drop-in spaces.

This vibrant and environmentally friendly scheme contains two cool and calm atria for social activities; both spaces contain bridges and balconies connecting buzzing human traffic across the building.

As part of an ongoing University project to develop low energy buildings, the school will be incorporating energy saving tactics such as thermal massing, natural day lighting, controlled ventilation, some energy generation features and ground coupled cooling.
