Our new home

Live webcam

New Building - live progress

We have a live webcam that's pointing directly at the development site, 24 hours a day, seven days a week so you can keep track of things, as they happen, wherever you are in the world.

Topping Out

The project is progressing well and the Topping Out ceremony was held on October 22 to celebrate the reaching the building's highest point.

Just over three minutes of an audio recording is available on Soundcloud of some of the thoughts and impressions from those that attended on the day.

Sustainable design

This innovative new University building embodies and reflects the vision of the Business School for growth, excellence and sustainability. Work on the site started in January 2013, with a completion date set for December 2014. The landmark building will champion sustainable design and will include a winter garden, formal and informal learning and teaching space, a 250-seater lecture theatre, state-of-the-art ICT provision, social spaces and a café.
