Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA) is one of the top 100 most improved schools in England. It recognised as a centre of excellence for pupils between the ages of 11-18.

MEA needed to create more space to accommodate the city’s growing number of pupils. Willmott Dixon are creating the Durie Building, a new teaching block to accommodate 500 more pupils. This represents an increase of 40%. As well extra teaching space there will also be a full size 3G sports pitch and the changing rooms will be refurbished. All this while the existing school remains in operation!

The Durie building will provide a new theatre so students can perform in a specialist space. New art, fashion and music rooms will enhance the creative learning spaces. It will also be equipped with a brilliant new space for teaching English. Finally, the second floor will be devoted to science.

TimelapseManchester have installed two time-lapse cameras to film the construction process, and will make a film when the project is complete in September 2017. By using two time-lapse cameras the whole site can be captured from different angles, giving the site team a better view of the area. The site team use the web links provided to see near real-time images of the building work, with the added benefit of being able to access these images from any Internet enabled device.
