University of Salford

RPS provided Mechanical and Electrical Engineering services to develop the base build design for this development situated in the heart of the new BBC “Media City”.

The building consists of 14 storeys, each with a floor plate of 3,500m2. The University will effectively occupy four storeys from the ground floor upwards with the Media Department being the main occupying department.

The building includes TV and Radio Studios, Specialist Video Editing Rooms, Teaching Spaces, Café, Specialist IT Rooms, PC Suites and general break out spaces.

Dedicated air handling plant for the TV and Radio Studios and specialist ventilation and cooling were provided to meet the specific requirements of the fit-out.

Due to the nature of the operation a significant emphasis was placed on the acoustic impact of the plant and equipment to achieve a requirement for very low noise levels but high cross talk attenuation measures.
