AMBS celebrate significant step in campus redevelopment

(20 July 2017)

Colleagues, donors, contractors and partners gathered at Booth Street West earlier this week to celebrate a significant step forward in Alliance Manchester Business School’s (AMBS) redevelopment. 

Lord Alliance, whose donation to the School is one of the largest ever made to a UK business school, attended the topping out ceremony for the new campus development at the Booth Street West site. Significant business school donors and advisory board members were also in attendance along with senior figures from property developer Bruntwood and site contractor Mace Construction. 

In total, more than £33million has now been raised to support the redevelopment, including the £9.7million HEFCE funding, and private investment. 

The redevelopment project, which is part of the University’s ten-year Campus Masterplan, includes a new hotel, an enhanced Executive Education Centre, and an improved retail and food offering managed by Bruntwood.
