After being shortlisted with a number of worthy projects such as School of Digital Arts, The Dean Trust Academy, Ardwick, Three New Bailey and Two New Bailey Square, Salford, Manchester Museum Courtyard Project was ultimately awarded Manchester Sub Regional Contract of the Year at the Northwest Regional Construction Awards 2021.
This Manchester Museum Courtyard project, designed by Purcell, transforms the already diverse Manchester Museum into a multi functioning space for live, creative use with the intention to bring its visitors a more engaging experience.
