Take care around building works on campus
Geoffrey Manton and Grosvenor buildings being developed
If you’re been around the Geoffrey Manton and Grosvenor buildings recently, you may have noticed some development works taking place and wondered what is being built?
Well the exciting news is, the construction work is creating our new creative hub for Arts and Humanities at Manchester Metropolitan, which is due to be complete in 2020. This inspirational venue will support the excellent teaching at the University and will introduce an exciting new 180-seat theatre auditorium, poetry library, radio and television studios and language centre.
You may see an increase in large trucks around the site over the coming weeks (deliveries of materials) and the University will continue to take every precaution to ensure the safety of everyone on campus and minimise any disturbances in and around the area.
If you are walking, cycling or driving by the Geoffrey Manton and Grosvenor buildings, please make sure you:
- Pay extra attention to your surroundings – remember this is a live construction site
- Use the Geoffrey Manton entrance on Oxford Road – this is a lot quieter than the main entrance
- Always listen and follow the instructions of the site foreman and his team – their job is to make sure you are safe and no accidents happen
- Use the designated crossing points on Lower Ormond street - there is more traffic passing through this road than usual
- Please wait patiently if the gates near Geoffrey Manton are closed for deliveries
