The £4.4m investment in Clothworkers’ South will create new laboratories, exhibition areas and student spaces that will excite and enable. The building will house state of the art research facilities focused on 3D Weaving, Creative and Technical Digital Print, Sustainability and Colour.  

To minimise the disruption to students during the busy exam period, a significant amount of work is programmed to take place during the summer break to minimise disruption.

The following areas will be upgraded:

  • Ground Floor : G07, G08, G10, G12, G15, G16 G30, G31 and Corridors (out of hours)
  • First Floor : 102, 104, 107, 110, 111 and Corridors (out of hours)
  • Second Floor : 206, 209 and Corridors (out of hours)
  • Third Floor : 314, 315 and Corridors (out of hours)

With the exception of rooms 107 and 206 which will commence on the 8th May 2017 the remaining areas listed above will commence on the 26th June 17 after the summer term has finished.
