We’re delighted to see our project at Bolton College’s Motor Vehicle Centre win runner up in the Manchester Architects Awards.

One of Michael Nugent’s projects – the Motor Vehicle Centre at Bolton College – has claimed a runner up spot in the Manchester Architects Awards 2015.

The awards, which were presented on 4th June, are designed to enhance architects’ reputation and promote success in architecture and engineering.

Bolton College’s engineering building was awarded as runner up in ‘Commercial Development: Built’ category, along with another nominee and the Blackpool Council Offices, which scooped the winner’s title.

Michael Nugent fitted all mechanical installations at the Motor Vehicle Centre in the college’s engineering complex. The centre, which was designed by global architecture firm, IBI Group, offers vocational learning space for Motor Vehicle Engineering students.

As one of the few colleges providing motor vehicle education in the Greater Manchester area, the state-of-the-art centre is an important hub for the subject. Its innovative facilities enable the college to deliver in-depth motor training, raising the standards of engineering education in the area.

Yet it was the centre’s cutting-edge design and ingenuity that attracted the attention of the Manchester Architects Awards judges. The scheme is delivered by the Manchester Society of Architects, which was established 150 years ago to champion exciting architects and nurture the industry’s talent.

Michael Nugent is proud to have been involved in a project nominated for such a prestigious award and we want to congratulate IBI Group on their achievement.
