Shepherd Robson design new MMU campus
The Manchester office of Sheppard Robson is to lead the design team at the new Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) Birley Fields campus in Hulme.

The £120 million scheme will create a new home for the Institute of Education and the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care.

Ian Butler, managing partner at Sheppard Robson, said:  “We are thrilled to have won the competitive tender for this hugely important project. The community campus will have a dramatic impact upon Hulme, pushing forward regeneration plans in the area to create a vibrant hub that will benefit not only MMU students but, the community as a whole.”

The appointment will see Sheppard Robson carry out the design for the academic buildings, the energy centre, public square and other public space and the sustainability infrastructure.

The firm has previously designed MMU’s Geoffrey Manton Building, opened in 1996.

MMU has also appointed Gardiner & Theobald as consultant project managers and quantity surveying consultants, Gillespies as landscape architects and AECOM as engineering consultants.
