nmp has been involved in its development from 2004 until the present day. Our original engagement was a feasibility study on behalf of the bbc with regard to the potential benefits and risks of movin 5 key commissioners and 2,500 staff, including world class Sports and Future media and technology departments out of London and North to Manchester/Salford.
We then managed the bid process on behalf of the Manchester consortium including putting together a team of key advisors including architects, planning and property advisors, M&E consultants, technical studio advisers, ICT vendors including Siemens, IBM, BT and developed the legal structure for the innovative operating model with the key stakeholders and legal advisers.
MediaCity Uk is now being perceived as "the place to go" for people to live and for companies that are interested in innovation in the media sector. This is underlined by the high number of London-based BBC executives who have signed up to relocate to Manchester/Salford.

Pacific Quay in Glasgow forms part of the largest regeneration project ever to take place in Scotland. To dat, well over £200million has been invested in Pacific Quay by the public and private sectors to regenerate the former shipyards and bring the River Clyde back into the life of Glasgow.
Pacific has taken at least ten years to reach its current vibrant state where it has critical mass and a clear vision, mainly due to conflicting vision driven by a complex ownership structure, which has been recently simplified. nmp have been involved in the project since 2000 and Danny Meaney is retained as an advisor to the project.
Pacific Quay is now widely seen as being at a tipping point where critical mass is within reach and is becoming a sought after media business location.
