BIMM Manchester has invited BKD to design a vibrant brave design scheme that will delight and impress all users and visitors whilst supporting the key day-to-day functionality of each space. A space for creativity to flourish and for future stars of the music industry to hone their talents.

BIMM Manchester Principal Vaseema Hamilton states:

“BIMM Manchester is located in the heart of the city at No.8 Great Marlborough Street, a classic red brick / green glass mill-style building which holds a powerful sense of history and narrative around Manchester’s entrepreneurial and industrial past. BIMM is at the lead in to Manchester’s prestigious Knowledge Quarter and within 10 minutes walk of numerous contemporary music venues. We believe it will be the perfectly placed hub for Manchester’s future music and creative talent. BKDs contribution will be to help us reference and acknowledge the city’s music heritage whilst presenting an environment which is aspirational and reaches to the future.”

Ben Kelly adds:

We are happy to be working in Manchester again and to have the opportunity to further the cultural legacy established when working with Factory Records.”
