Uni to spend up to £18m on Media City fit-out

Salford University has published a tender brief for the preparation of its 100,000 sq ft facility within the Media City UK development.

The university said it has set aside a budget of between £14m and £18m for the 100,000 sq ft fit-out, spread over four floors of a 12-storey building in Peel's scheme.

The contract includes standard commercial space fit-out plus installation of audio-visual equipment, specialist spaces including TV & radio studios and a high level of acoustic separation between rooms. There will also be a cafe, meeting rooms and offices.

The large budget includes the cost of procuring the specialist equipment needed for the media school, which is set to open in September 2011.
