Major new technology hub to open soon

Building of a major new science and technology hub off Oxford Road has achieved practical completion.

With the capacity to house a 150-strong community of science and technology businesses the Bright Building is a key part of the Corridor Manchester innovation district.

It will also serve as the new headquarters for Innovate UK’s Internet of Things city demonstrator, CityVerve. The futuristic building will be a techie’s dream, featuring fibre connectivity, digital whiteboards, brainstorm and breakout areas, along with a fitness studio and digital lab.

The Bright Building will officially open on 21 September.
