The School of Earth and Environment has continued to grow and has built on its strong foundations of world-leading research excellence and being a national market-leader in student recruitment across a broad portfolio.
These exciting plans for a £7.5m investment will ensure that the School remains at the forefront of research. The expansion will also create a new collaborative space for the Priestley International Centre for Climate and will mark the establishment of both the Priestley Centre research platform and a Leeds-Met Office Joint Research Unit – which will realise the Priestley Centre mission to promote interdisciplinary climate-solutions research of the highest standard.
Enabling works are now complete following the completion of internal strip out of level 10. Refurbishment work is now underway to create new office layout. To accommodate the expansion works staff currently located in levels 7 & 10 will be relocated to new homes on Campus this year.
