The University of Manchester
Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD) is a new build project for the University of Manchester that has provided a new home for 8,000 staff and students.
We compiled the initial brief and vision for this ambitious project, challenging many long held practices and beliefs whilst maintaining the support of staff and students. We delivered a 40% reduction in area from the ‘lift and shift’ requirement and our role continued through to overseeing the appointment and handover to the Design Team.

We used 360 photography as the basis of our campaign - creating a visual talking point to raise awareness of the survey. We established a communication portal to play back our workshop outputs and survey data, as well as to encourage particpation from staff and students to upload their own thoughts on the project.
