St John's Factory, Manchester
Vectos was appointed by MCC to advise on the flagship new events space for Manchester called Factory. This offers both a 1600 seat Theatre plus a 5000 person flexible Warehouse space designed by world renowned architects OMA and will create a landmark arts venue where the widest range of art forms would be made and presented. Uniquely this development is raised above and oversails the highway with lorry lifts required to bring the event deliveries to the performance level.
The challenges of this development have required advice on Lorry Lifts, Road Closures, Waste & Servicing Strategies, Highway Design, Pedestrian Movement and Marshalling as well as Trip Forecasting for peak arrivals and departures.
