Head of education and Manchester studio chair, Gavin Elliott, is one of the presenters at a one day conference in Manchester on the theme of relationships between university and city. He is one of the speakers at 16.15 who will take part in a discussion about creating inspirational places with future opportunities to achieve synergy and urban networks. The context is the development sites of Network Rail, MMU and Bruntwood, within walking distance of each other, and how to join them to create an entrepreneurial knowledge city. BDP is currently on site transforming Manchester Victoria Station as part of the £1bn+ Northern Hub and North West Electrification Programme.
HEDQF was established around 20 years ago as an initiative of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to have a stronger understanding of issues affecting its clients and to promote high quality design in university buildings and estates. Its membership is balanced with representatives from HEIs and from the design and construction professionals.
