Almost 100,000 sq ft of new structures were erected including a 30,000 sq ft stage area with vehicle access through 6m x 6m stage doors. The new ‘Studio 6’ features dressing rooms, fully furnished green rooms, production offices and lighting rigs. Also in-built are set construction workshops and 40,000 sq ft of business units that companies can rent and use to supply the Film and TV production industries.
The space was converted from a 1970’s Fujitsu manufacturing hall and is made up of steel framed and clad buildings which has been transformed into a modern, industrial looking complex of additional studios with heavy emphasis on acoustics and high specification mechanical and electrical services.
This multi-million-pound expansion of Space Studios Manchester was completed in December 2017 and adds to the already active production facility filming and producing hit TV shows such as BBC’s ‘Dragon’s Den’ and ‘The A Word’ and ITV’s ‘Cold Feet’ to name just a few.
KOK performed Principal Designer services on this exciting project in West Gorton, Manchester.
