The University Capital Group recently gave the go ahead to the exciting plans for a £7.5m investment for the School of Earth and Environment into levels 7 and 10 of the Staff Centre building, together with the creation of a new collaborative space for the Priestley International Centre for Climate.
A programme of enabling works is currently underway to facilitate the creation of more office and meeting room spaces. The project is scheduled for completion in Autumn 2018.
The expansion marks the continued success and growth of the School, which continues to maintain its strong foundations of world leading research excellence and being a national market-leader in student recruitment. This investment will also enable the establishment of both the Priestley Centre research platform and a Met Office Joint Research Unit – which will realise the Priestley Centre mission to promote interdisciplinary climate-solutions research of the highest standard.
