First Street Cultural Facility, Manchester
The project was to construct a 4 storey Reinforced Concrete Frame for the New Cultural Facility.
The new venue will have a 500-seat theatre, a 150-seat second theatre space, 500m2 double-height gallery spaces, up to five cinema screens, learning spaces, digital and broadcast production facilities, a café bar, a restaurant and workshop spaces.
Adana had to construct Reinforced Concrete Walls over 6m high surrounding the building as well as the Insitu concrete slabs within the building.
An 18m high Theatre was constructed again using reinforced concrete.
Parts of the reinforced concrete frame were constructed to a very high specification as this is to be exposed concrete.
