The new Coliseum theatre is being designed by the award winning Dutch architectural practice Mecanoo.
Mecanoo’s recent work includes HOME, Manchester and The Library of Birmingham. Their current projects include Oldham’s new Arts and Heritage Centre, which will be our neighbour on Union Street, Manchester Engineering Campus Development and the renovation of the New York Midtown Public Library.
Mecanoo are committed to prioritising the local supply chain throughout the new Coliseum project. In support of Oldham Council’s ‘Get Oldham Working’ campaign, contractors are developing an employment and skills strategy to focus on young people within the borough, improving links with local education providers and exploring the opportunity to create apprenticeships.
