The Space Project Secures Its First Office Tenants

News Image
The Space Project in Manchester has secured the first of its long term office tenants.

First through the doors of the new facility are post-production specialists Flix Facilities and TV and film resource publishers Kays. They join the team from the BBC's new children's drama 'World's End' who are already on site in pre-production. The arrival of Flix and Kays represents the next step in the Project’s strategy to create a cluster of support companies both on The Space Project’s extensive campus or in associated buildings adjacent to the main site.
Post production house Flix has been experiencing a period of rapid expansion over the past two years, adding to its operation in central Manchester with two locations at MediaCity totalling 29,000sq ft. the latest of which is the £1million White Tower Project announced earlier this month. They will now enhance that portfolio with a new base at The Space Project, offering post production support to any on or off site productions interested in taking advantage of their facilities and expertise.
Publisher of Kays Production Manual for 32 years, Kays is the essential TV and film industry resource for Producers, Production Managers and Location Managers, with the company’s product portfolio now including Kays iPhone, iPad and Android Apps. Already operating out of Pinewood Studios, the decision to establish a permanent footing at The Space Project in Manchester represents a significant investment in the growth potential of the production community in the North West.
Both Flix and Kays will take up space within one of seven 410-795 sq. ft. offices starting this summer, while there is further office space in the main production building allocated for additional companies who can provide near to hand services to both on-site productions and the wider sector. The Space Project, a profit for purpose enterprise set up to grow opportunity and employment in the sector, is looking for companies which share the same aims.
Flix Facilities Managing Director Leo Casserley, said of the decision to join The Space Project: "The Space Project gives us the chance to be involved at the ground floor with a venture that we’re not only sure will strongly support our growth ambitions, but provide us with the opportunity to contribute to Manchester's ability to continue to produce content that is second to none the world over."
Sue Woodward OBE, Founder of The Space Project, said of the new tenants’ appointments: "The Flix model is all about demonstrating that the North can offer high class post services, while Kays’ decision to join us at The Space Project is a further welcome professional endorsement of our objectives here. We look forward to welcoming on board additional new businesses in the near future with the ability to make a similar contribution to our ambition to make Manchester the go to place for independent production facilities in the UK."
