Not sure, hopefully. Think there's quite a bit of demolition to be done on site first. We'll have to wait and see

Willmott Dixon wins Manchester Uni physics extension



The University of Manchester has picked Willmott Dixon to expand the Schuster Building, home of the School of Physics and Astronomy.

The £11.5m Schuster Annexe will be constructed on the eastern side of the existing building, notable for housing the laboratories where super material graphene was first isolated.

The proposed four-storey building on the corner of Upper Brook Street and Brunswick Street will be directly connected to the Schuster Building, with a metal bridge.

Manchester University’s procurement team has opted to award the project outside its existing trio of framework partners: Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourk, Sir Robert McAlpine.

These firms were lined up to deliver who have been signed up to deliver the £1bn campus expansion programme on projects worth more than £10m by 2022.

London Road Fire Station has, for years, been owned by the Britannia Hotels group - who specialise in taking grand and beautiful buildings and allowing them to fall into disrepair (they also run a chain of mediocre hotels).

After years of campaigning the building has finally been sold to Allied London, who plan to revitalise the building.

These photos were taken on a recent tour of the building, by Flickr's LordLucan 7th Earl





The internal courtyard will eventually play hosts to events and a market:






While the rest of the building is due to be cleaned up and converted into a hotel, apartments, shops, bars and restaurants:
