SPACE Architects are pleased to announce the completion of Co-op Academy Belle Vue. An excellent educational facility with a striking design, the Co-op Academy Belle Vue is a testament to the efforts of Sir Robert McAlpine, the design team, Manchester City Council and the Co-operative Academies Trust.
Paul Broadfoot, Director at SPACE Architects, said: "This stunning DFE-compliant school has been delivered in remarkable timescales due to the superb collective team effort from all involved."
The new three-storey school building is situated on the site of the former Manchester Ecogical Zoo, more recently Showcase Cinema on Hyde Road in Manchester. Designed in line with the government's Dfe Output specification, the new build area, including the Sports facility, is 8610m2. The ninth Co-Op Academy in Greater Manchester, this co-educational school caters for 1,200 pupils and approximately 60 - 70 members of staff.
