MSA Dinner 2022 Highlights

A night to remember as the MSA Dinner makes it return

The MSA Dinner has been a main-stay on the architectural calendar for decades, however, due to the events over the course of the pandemic, it’s not been held since 2019. It was great to finally bring the dinner back to the architectural community of Manchester – a chance to get together, to celebrate the successes over the past year, and ultimately – to party. And the attendees did just that! 

Held for the first time at Victoria Warehouse, the venue is made up of two storage warehouses that were used during the early to mid 20th century. It was redeveloped as a music and event space in 2012 and given its current name in 2018. The MSA dinner took over ‘The Bays’ – a space made up of an adjoining bar and dinner / dancing space, built in 1932 for cotton stock, and later storage for Kellogg’s, McVitie’s and Cadbury’s; the Bay’s rich history and interesting architecture made them ideal space for our society dinner.

The event had something for everyone – delicious food, a quality bar service, music from the incredible ‘Mr Wilson’s Second Liners’, a DJ, dancing, Photo Booth and even a dedicated caricaturist who was on hand all night to turn Manchester’s most notable architects into cartoon versions of themselves. 

The night was a complete sell-out and we hope to see the dinner returning to it’s right place as a mainstay on the architectural calendar for years to come. 

Finally – we couldn’t put on events of that scale and quality without the support of our amazing sponsors. A huge thank you to – AluK, Wienerberger, Beplas, Project Four, Komastyle, Bench Master, QPSL, Solus Ceramics and of course the RIBA North West!

MSA Awards 2022 Highlights

450 architects and construction professionals came together celebrate the achievements of Manchester’s Architects at the annual MSA Awards. 

After a refreshed changed of venue, the awards evening returned to its normal slot in June. We had a sell out crowd of 450 in attendance and showcased some amazing projects from across Manchester’s architectural scene. The winners thoroughly deserved the awards and we hope that the respective teams had chance to celebrate the win and enjoy their success on the evening. The event would not be possible without the hard work of a small group of volunteers that go above and beyond to support the society, week in, week out.

 

The awards were judged by Kees Kaan.

Kees Kaan is an architect and co-founder of Rotterdam-based practice KAAN Architecten. Since 2006, he is also the Chair of the Complex Projects department at the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft. In 2019 Kaan was appointed Chairman of the Architecture Department. Moreover, he has been a Principal Investigator at Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) since 2016. Over the years, Kaan has built up a national and international portfolio of projects, including the Supreme Court and the Netherlands Forensic Institute in The Hague, Amsterdam Courthouse, Institut des Sciences Moléculaire d’Orsay, Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and the Dutch Embassy in Mozambique. Kees Kaan is an international lecturer and sits on several juries and boards, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Kees certainly had his work cut out choosing the shortlist and winners for each category. View the winner sand judges comments.

A huge thank you should go to all the entrants for their efforts, to those shortlisted who were all of the highest quality and of course, congratulations to the worthy winners. 

Finally – we couldn’t put on events of that scale and quality without the support of our amazing sponsors. A huge thank you to – AluK, Wienerberger, Beplas, Project Four, Komastyle, Bench Master, QPSL and of course the RIBA North West!

New Sponsor

NEW SPONSOR – Project Four
We are pleased to announce that Project Four is our newest sponsor. 

Speaking on the announcement, Managing Director, Alan Robson said: “Project Four chose to work with and sponsor the MSA for 2022, and hopefully beyond as we felt that our approach to CDM + supporting designers/architects fits perfectly.  At P4 we felt that we simply can’t keep taking the same approach to CDM as the industry has since 1994 (and under the 2007 regulations).  Our retained support for existing MSA members has proven successful in recent year, working with practices such as Buttress, AEW Architects, Fletcher Rae, JDA, Eden Projects, Shedkm. We also work with many other architects, on a project-by-project basis across the UK.

At P4 we have developed a service that offers design houses / studios greater protection and wider business support, and not simply delivering projects in isolation – with (usually) no return on the investment.  Taking the fees previously used for project-by-project appointments, with the aim of making cdm compliance within practices/business more efficient (reducing the larger project by project fees).  P4 work with architects and other designers to provide focused/bespoke training, gap analysis + proactive action plans, CDM toolkits, management systems + upskilling through retained support.

We look forward to supporting the MSA and its members with some bespoke events + added value support. Look out for our sessions on strategic CDM + the Building Safety Bill.”

New Year Message from the President

Dear Colleagues and Friends.

A New Year beckons, so it is a great time to share our vision for your Society and upcoming activities for 2022.

The past two years have been tumultuous and difficult, causing a decrease in face-to-face events, but we were delighted at the enthusiasm and high attendance for the Awards, lectures and Barbecue and we really appreciate your support. We know there is a desire for friends and colleagues to meet, share stories and enjoy each other’s company and we intend to fulfil that desire wherever possible, be it digitally or physically.

We will be focusing on creating more and better activities that our members can enjoy. In fact, our theme for 2022 is all about growth.

Growth in membership, growth in engagement with our members, growth in the range and variety of activities that we offer, growth in celebration of our members’ achievements as individuals and practices. Growth in knowledge to meet the challenges that face our profession in times to come. Growth in inspiring lectures by leaders in their fields and emerging stars, coupled with hands-on experience for our members joining the profession.

And last but not least, growth in fun and enjoyment.

Our mission is:

‘To champion and nurture the present and future architects of Manchester’

 

To help us achieve this goal, we need:

Enthusiastic and engaged members of our council – if you have a passion to get involved and help our members, join us.

Members who are willing to share with people who don’t know our work. Help spread the word. 

Ideas to improve our work and activity, tell us the kind of things you’d like to see.

Help us by supporting our sponsors – host a practice CPD or check out the useful content on our Knowledge Hub.


Please get in touch with us and help us to help you!
