The University of Manchester

Case Study


Evertaut worked closely with the architects at Fairhursts Design Group to incorporate fixed structural tiering and Diploma Lecture Theatre Seating in three of the new lecture theatres within the Simon Building at The University of Manchester. Graham Construction were the client’s chosen contractors.
