Our Town Hall - Manchester Town Hall and public realm refurbishment from RIBA 2 onwards

Purcell Architecture Limited, lead-consultant, on behalf of the entire OTH Team


Purcell are leading a collaborative, multidisciplinary team for the £330 million refurbishment of the Grade-I Listed Manchester Town Hall. This will transform the building back to its former civic glory, conserving public treasures, improving access and transforming the visitor experience.

Our approach to engagement and active participation deserves recognition for grounding the development of the civic heart of our city in a transparent democratic process. Through governance, clear objectives, stimulated thinking and informed decision-making, each strand of this complex project is informed by local experts, volunteers, communities and end-users. Our iterative engagement dialogue ensures Our Town Hall exists for everyone.
