LOCATION

The A1S Group were employed by MACE construction to help ITV re-home and re-create the iconic Coronation Street set. Moving from Quay street, Manchester where the show had been produced continuously for 50 years to MediaCity UK, Trafford. MACE and the A1S Group were briefed by ITV to create a “carbon copy” of the entire set.

What we delivered

Our surveyors were instructed to go and capture the highest level of detail and replicate the existing products whilst filming was in action.

Take for example the iconic Kevin Webster’s Garage, which features an industrial folding garage door. Post the creation and installation of the door, designers were employed to age the entire set meaning that a graffiti artist had to aerosol spray and scratch in graffiti to the finest detail.
