The James Chadwick Building at The University of Manchester is a new facility for the School of Engineering and Analytical Science and was a precursor to the Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD) completed in 2020.
Halliday Meecham Architects were commissioned to design the new building for ground breaking research and teaching within the school. Accommodation is arranged around a four storey glazed atrium space which provides pilot-scale space for industrial experiments with a range of industrial processing equipment. Since completion, we have worked with the University to repurpose the space for new laboratories and to reconfigure the pilot-scale space.
The building achieved BREEAM excellent and contains a ground source heat pump providing a green source of energy for the school.
