Scene Power in Property celebrates ‘pace and scale’ of activity in NW

Exceptional public-private partnerships have enabled property development to continue despite the headwinds of the past two years, Manchester leader Cllr Bev Craig will tell invited guests at the first Scene Power in Property event tonight.

There will be a special screening of a short film produced for the occasion in front of an invited audience of developers at the Everyman cinema in Allied London’s ABC Building in Manchester.

In the film, Craig, leader of Manchester City Council since December, says Manchester has kept up the impressive “pace and scale” of delivery despite difficulties such as Brexit, supply chain constraints and the pandemic because “we know what we are and we are able to set out a vision of what we want the future of the city to be.”

The video will be published on Place North West on Friday along with the full list of 50 people who make up the inaugural Scene Power in Property list. The 10-minute film is narrated by Burnage-born Hollywood-based actor Max Beesley with soundtrack by up-and-coming Liverpool band Red Rum Club.

Also sharing their thoughts about the recipe for success in the North West will be acclaimed architectural partners Rachel Haugh and Ian Simpson, who point to excellent public-private relationships. This willingness to work together attracts investment that “ultimately creates jobs and security for citizens”, says Simpson.

Craig adds that these “innovative partnerships” bring a seemingly endless supply of “new ideas, fresh thinking and fresh plans”.

One outstanding person from the list will receive the first Scene Power in Property Award in recognition of developments that have had the most impact in the past year.

Scene Power in Property was devised by commercial interior design and fit-out firm, Scene, based in Manchester, in association with Place North West.
