Sheppard Robson seeks planning for huge Manchester lab schemes

15 February 2017 | By Jim Dunton

Practice’s proposals would require the demolition of two wings of grade II listed Edwardian hospital

Sheppard Robson-designed proposals for two new commercial laboratory buildings in Manchester’s “knowledge quarter” have been lodged for planning.

Citylabs 2.0 and Citylabs 3.0 would deliver almost 25,000 sq m of clinical research space on land owned by Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and would be built for the Manchester Science Partnerships organisation.

The project aims to expand on the success of Sheppard Robson’s Citylabs 1.0 building, which completed in 2015 on a different part of the wider hospital campus.

But the new six- and seven-storey blocks would also require the demolition of two rear wings of the Grade II-listed Old Saint Mary’s Hospital - the remaining parts of which would be incorporated into the new development.

Permission for the demolition work at the site, on the corner of Oxford Road and Hathersage Road, was granted in 2010.

Sheppard Robson said the retained part of the Saint Mary’s Hospital would be “modified and refurbished” to provide smaller offices to complement those delivered in the new buildings, and would be connected to one of the new structures by an atrium.

The proposals also involve the retention and refurbishment of the Grade II-listed hospital chapel, which the practice said would act as “the fulcrum for a new landscaped public space”.

Sheppard Robson said Citylabs 3.0, the taller of the two proposed new buildings, would feature an anodised aluminium screen façade with a pattern inspired by the timber rafters of the neighbouring chapel.

It said the Citylabs 2.0 block had been given a “consistent treatment” to its façade with a similar pattern expressed in fritted glass.

Sheppard Robson partner Tony O’Brien said the structures had been “designed to excite and engage”.

“By weaving together existing buildings with state-of-the-art facilities, the project encapsulates the city’s track record for innovation whilst also looking to its next chapter of scientific research,” he said.

Manchester City Council has yet to set a target determination date for the application.

In addition to the NHS foundation trust, Manchester Science Partnerships shareholders include the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester city council, Salford city council, Cheshire East council and the property development firm Bruntwood.

Sir Ian McKellen to open gay rights exhibition in Manchester celebrating 50 years of activism


When? February 21st until September 3, 2017


Where? The People's History Museum, Spinningfields, Manchester


How to get there. National Rail from Salford Central, Metrolink from St Peter's Square (all lines except the G).


What? An exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of the Wolfenden report, which proposed that "homosexual behaviour between consenting adults in private should no longer be a criminal offence", detailing Manchester's role in the slow and steady march towards legal protection and equality for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.

Planned new building on Oxford Road.

International Screen School Manchester

Interview with Professor Mary Oliver, Head of Media at Manchester Metropolitan University and the driving force behind the new International Screen School Manchester

There has been lots of chatter about the creation of a new International Screen School in Manchester, and — following a reference to the project in George Osborne’s last Budget statement earlier in the year — a major funding bid has been worked up, with the full support of the University and the City Council, and there’s growing expectation about the project.

Graham Hitchen recently met with Mary Oliver to find out a bit more…

Q: Just to get started, can you tell us what this new International Screen School is going to be exactly.

MO: Subject to Government funding, we are planning to create a fantastic new building on Oxford Road, which will provide multi-disciplinary undergraduate, post-graduate and apprenticeship programmes in screen and post-screen media — and it will also be a hub for new businesses and innovators. I’m very excited about it — as are a lot of other people!

Q: So, when do the doors open?

MO: The new building won’t be up-and-running until 2021 — but we’re rolling out a series of programmes over the next few years, including a new UX Apprenticeship degree next year. We’re also planning a ‘pop-up’ ISSM and an ISSM Summer School. You should expect to see lots happening in this space very soon!

Found an early image of the building and a bit more info on the proposal.

Today was the big day that the arch for the Ordsall Chord was craned into place.

A delicate job, lifting however many tonnes this is all at once - but it went well and now the arch is poised to become a rail icon for Manchester

The bridge is certainly an impressive piece of engineering, will look superb once the project is finished.

  • Completion: for Tower 1 & Tower 4: 2018. For Tower 2 & Tower 3: 2020

  • Developer: Renaker

Current status

Towers 1, 2 & 3 Under Construction, Tower 4 groundworks

Nearest transport






Your weekly Owen St update from yours truly.

At Tower 4 (44 floors, 130m) the core looks to be about 2 floors off the ground now.






Bit closer up of Tower 2 (50 floors, 158m). Looks like the concrete base is in and I think that hole in the middle there is where the core is going to emerge from






I'd say the core for Tower 1 (64 floors, 200.5m) is now at ground level.






Ground clearance is still ongoing for Tower 3 (37 floors 122m) and Building 5 - these two aren't anywhere near as advanced as the other towers.






Maybe 2/3 months until construction starts here:

Today

Along with the MECD, and at 45 metres tall, the SHRI, along with Circle Square, will have a huge impact on Upper Brook Street as you head in or out of the city centre.


Quote:
Business Desk Morth West.

Sir Henry Royce Institute

The Government is to invest £229m in the development of advanced materials and a new centre of excellence for the life and physical sciences as part of its modern Industrial Strategy.




Included in the investment is £126m in grants for the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials, supporting the creation of a world-leading research centre at the University of Manchester, with satellite centres at the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College.

Set to open in 2019, the £150m Royce Institute will encompass nine key areas of materials research including graphene and proposed research areas will be grouped into four themes - energy, engineering, functional and soft materials.

Located at the heart of the University of Manchester's Engineering Campus, the 16,000 sq m building will house world-leading materials scientists, equipment and collaborative space for industrial and academic engagement.

It is believed that, at 46 metres high, the Royce building will be the tallest on the University of Manchester campus.

It will be located next to the Alan Turing Building on Upper Brook Street, in close proximity to the Schools of Physics and Chemistry, as well as the £61m National Graphene Institute (NGI) and the £350m Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), which is currently under construction.

The government also announced a £103m investment in a new national centre of excellence for life and physical sciences at the Rosalind Franklin Institute in Oxford.

Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark said: “Research and development has a proven track record of making our economy more competitive and creating new products, services and better ways of doing business. For these reasons, we’ve placed the UK’s strengths in science, research and innovation at the core of our modern Industrial Strategy."
