New Academic Building Update

new-building-2014It’s an exciting time at BU; with our state-of-the-art Student Centre taking shape, we are now ready to progress plans to build a new academic building at the Talbot Campus.

A planning application for this Β£22million glass fronted, four-storey building with new lecture theatres, seminar rooms, an attractive atrium and new catering facilities, will be submitted to the local council this month.

Consultation on these plans has resulted in very positive feedback from students, staff and the wider community.

The feedback has also informed our decision to apply to build a new Park and Stride car park off of Gillett Road.

A full summary of the consultation and the feedback received can be viewed online.

We will keep you updated with the progress of the plans.

Please note that the proposed building and associated images are subject to planning permission and may subsequently change, and we will keep you posted as they develop.
