Work begins on new teaching facility
Colleagues have come together to mark the start of work on a new teaching facility on Lyddon Terrace.
Representatives from the University of Leeds Estates team, the School of Law and Leeds University Business School joined the contractor BAM construction and architects DLA Architecture to mark this important construction milestone.
The investment, on Lyddon Terrace, will create a new central teaching facility which will also house space for the School of Law and the Business School. It is proposed that prominent features of the building will include a new Trading Room, flexible teaching areas and Behavioural Laboratories to provide more flexible and innovative ways of teaching.
Steve Gilley, Director of Estates and Facilities said: “This new building is contributing to the University’s wider ambition to create an environment that promotes learning, innovation and enterprise. It will provide technology-rich, flexible teaching spaces, lecture theatres and trading rooms, further advancing the delivery of world-class teaching solutions.”
BAM construction director, Kelvin Pollard, said: “It is fantastic to be building another world-class teaching facility at the University of Leeds, where we are already on site delivering the Sir William Henry Bragg building. We have well-established, strong working relationships with the University and this is an excellent basis to work from.”
