The refurbishment work will see an upgrade in fixtures and fittings along with the sensitive restoration of unique original rooms and features which contribute to the great workplace environment. The improved learning environment will enable enhanced interactions between the Institute’s various stakeholders such as students, staff and industry partners. Creating modern open spaces for these interactions will contribute to the Institute’s ambition to further develop as a hub for inter disciplinary learning.

This project will transform the navigation around the building creating new simple accommodation which fits comfortably within the existing terrace buildings. A new lift will also provide better internal access. The new building will be separated from the original with a glazed link which makes a clear distinction between old and new, whilst also creating an interesting circulation route with views over St Georges Field.

The energy efficiency and sustainability of the building will be much improved through new heating and lighting, improved thermal performance of the roof, windows and basement.
