Bolton Uni to take space at Manchester Science Park 

Working in partnership with the London College of Accountancy, the university will occupy 36,000 sq ft at Bruntwood SciTech’s Base Building. 

Having previously delivered courses for Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Northampton, LCA has selected Manchester as the location for its first facility in the North of England.

The education provider “has entered into a partnership with the University of Bolton to provide a range of accountancy, healthcare and business management courses,” according to a planning statement prepared by Deloitte. 

Under proposals lodged by Bruntwood SciTech to Manchester City Council, floors one and two would be converted and fit out to the education partnership’s requirements. 

A spokesperson for Bruntwood SciTech said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming the new partnership between LCA and the University of Bolton to Manchester Science Park.

“With a range of business courses including those specific to healthcare available, locating to Base will provide the opportunity to build strong links with high growth businesses in the Oxford Road Corridor and provide them with the wider ecosystem support they require, while addressing the recognised need for highly skilled talent to support Greater Manchester’s burgeoning knowledge economy.”

Designed by Bridge Architects, Base Building was completed last year by Caddick Construction.

Earlier this week, Bruntwood SciTech unveiled plans for the £60m redevelopment of the Greenheys building at Manchester Science Park. 

The existing Greenheys building is to be demolished and replaced with a new-build 131,000 sq ft facility at Manchester Science Park.  

UK Biobank is in talks to occupy around half of the six-storey building, Place North West understands.
