I wasn't sure where to post this, but I met a friend this morning who is a member of Odeon Cinemas...big movie goer. Anyways, she got a letter in the mail (I have lived in Canada for 11 years and can't bring myself round to say Post naturally) saying that Odeon Printworks will be closing down.

AMC have bought out the ODEON chain, as part of the deal they had to sell one of their two city centre cinemas so they opted to sell the Printworks ODEON to Vue. The AMC over in Great Northern is likely to end up becoming an ODEON, but there is a big development scheme being developed for Great Northern which may affect the cinema, just to confuse things further!

Route map




A route walk of the under construction Trafford Park line by Johnny de Rivative.

The line will leave the current alignment just after Pomona station, shown here on top of the viaduct in the centre of the image:





From there, it will run alongside the water, where vegetation has already been cleared:





... and along this previous rail alignment:





This pub will be demolished:





Construction has started on Wharfside tram stop. While the Salford side of the water has boomed in recent years, this side feels neglected. It's hoped this new Metrolink connection will regenerate the area





The tram will run alongside the waterside here, up where the sculptures are now. The sculptures will be moved further back:





Work has already started on getting rid of this roundabout, which will become EventCity tram stop, serving the adjacent convention centre:





The line will run alongside this motorway for a short while:





Parkway Metrolink station will be here:

Benoy Confirmed for Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2 Transformation

9 May 2017


Benoy is proud to confirm its appointment to the £1bn expansion of Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2. Benoy’s Team will be delivering the Interior Concept Design for the International Departure Lounge for the scheme which has been described as the biggest single construction project to take place in Greater Manchester.

“Terminal 2 at Manchester Airport is an exciting addition to our Aviation portfolio and we are honoured to be working alongside an incredibly talented team to design a new future for this global gateway in the North.” said Anna Manning, Senior Architect at Benoy.

The International Departure Lounge of Terminal 2 will form one of the key features of the transformation works. Spanning two levels and 32,467 m2, the space will feature new dining, retail and seating facilities. An innovative double-storey green wall acts as the centrepiece of the space and is surrounded by bespoke seating, a children’s playground and an expansive ‘Market’ with dining, restaurants, bars and retail offers.

Introducing a symbol of The North of England’s industrious past and present, the bee, hexagonal honeycomb patterns have been applied to the glass ceiling and feature wall designs.

“Bringing a sense of place is incredibly important in airport design; we want passengers to feel as though they are in Manchester, as opposed to any airport in the world,” said David Coyne, Executive Director at Benoy.

The completion of the Terminal 2 redevelopment is targeted for 2023, with significant changes to be noticeable to the public from as early as 2019.

Location

Manchester, UK

Client

Property Alliance Group

Construction Value

£10 million

Project Description

55 Portland street involves the development of an existing, 8-storey office and a new hotel and casino in Manchester city centre. DFC has been appointed on the office.

Being an existing building, there are several fire engineering challenges, and our role is to help the client reach cost certainty and to work to de-risk the regulatory approvals process.

Fire engineering challenges include: the implications of adding two storeys, ensuring that that maximum value is obtained from the retro-fitting of sprinklers, working within the constraints of the exiting core to ensure adequate means of escape and fire service access and facilities, and assessment of the existing structure to ensure that it has adequate fire resistance for modern standards and the additional floors.
