Mancunian Way Skate Park
We have been appointed Civil and Structural Engineers for the renovation and expansion of an existing skate park, located under the Mancunian Way motorway, close to Piccadilly Station, Manchester Working together.
This community project, run by the not-for-profit organisation ProjektsMCR, is designed to make skateboarding more accessible to the general public in city centre (with particular focus on young girls) and to transform Manchester into the ‘world’s first city of skateboarding’.
The site contains steel container units which provide café and office space for the adjacent skate park. The works proposed involve the removal of the existing containers units and some of the skate park, construction of increased existing café and office spaces provision (in the form of preformed container units), a new steelwork viewing deck connecting the café and office container units and redesigned skate park facilities.
