Game on: The shell and core of Urbis, the £30m centrepiece of Manchester's regenerated Millennium Quarter, has been completed. The centre is due to open in June, in time for the Commonwealth Games. Designed by Ian Simpson Architects, this is a "new kind of museum", which tells the story of the city through the experiences of its inhabitants. It was developed by Manchester council and built by Laing. MPM Capita acted as project manager with Martin Stockley Associates and Halcrow Waterman as structural engineers. Farley McGrath Consulting Engineers was services engineer, and Davis Langdon & Everest was QS. The exhibition is designed by At Large, Land Design Studio and Event Communications, with ESP as fit-out contractor.
