Booth lands £2.3m contract for Manchester’s new “Factory” arts and cultural venue
What a fantastic follow-up to our landmark HS2 success !
Booth Industries are delighted to announce the agreement of a £2.3 Million contract for the design, manufacture and installation of 2 large vertically-sliding power operated acoustic door-sets to the new ‘Factory’ venue in Manchester, which will be the permanent home of the Manchester International Festival. Only Booth Industries’ unique combination of innovation, vision and design capabilities have made it possible to create this complex engineering requirement, which will make it possible to divide two areas of the internal spaces and allow different performances in the different areas without sound disruption. Such a solution is key to the venue’s vision of flexible internal spaces, where intimate works can take place alongside opera, theatre or music concerts.
This award has reinforced Laing O Rourke’s faith in Booth’s ability to deliver high-profile projects within the required project timescales, and to deliver on their promises throughout every stage of the process. Booth Industries are extremely proud to be a part of this architectural landmark that will create many jobs and successes for the North West
