Integrated property support services and project delivery specialists Styles&Wood is nearing completion of the £7.1m refurbishment of the Royal Northern College of Music’s auditorium.

The site on Oxford Road has seen more than 70 construction staff give 5,000 hours a month on the scheme, which involved 19 weeks of demolition and 515 tonnes of material cleared from the space.

The development has refurbished and extended the hall, building a cantilevered balcony to increase capacity to 750 people, alongside new dressing rooms, showers, formal learning spaces and backstage facilities. –

The finishes for the auditorium, including seating and lighting, will be fitted over the next two weeks. The refurbishment has also seen advanced technical facilities and an air-conditioning and heating system installed. Students are expected to be able to use the hall from mid-October, with a VIP opening scheduled in November.
