Greengate Media Hub is a springboard platform for digital media individuals, collectives, and initiatives. Providing space, specialist software and resources, the scheme enables the economic expansion of Salford amidst a global recession. As inter-disciplinary relations form within Greengate, companies begin to collaborate as well as compete with each other for business. Due to its transmittance across the internet, the geographic boundaries for work produced here reduce every year. Targeting the global identity of Salford, the establishment of Greengate aims to restore the distinction between it and Manchester, which has deliberately been eroded in recent years.

The programme selection is a direct response between the types of population that occupy around the site and an aim to reintroduce these populations back to the site. The design of the building focuses around the ascension up the site on to the rail lines and uses through the building.

The scheme used the bottom-up approach, which included the local residents, pubs and community in the design process to encourage the engagement with local population. This method allows people community. Hence, the brewery with strong local beer community will introduce new ways for the consumers to engage with craft beer and its making. With the help of coding technology, the management of the brewing processes can be kept at high accuracy while the waste to be maintain at the minimal amount.
