Institute of transport studies

Wheels in motion for the Institute for Transport Studies

The £3.9m investment to transform the Institute for Transport Studies is now complete. Staff and students will return to the newly refurbished building by the end of October.

Over the last year, the transformation of the Institute for Transport Studies building has been underway.

The £3.9m investment has involved extensive refurbishment work to upgrade fixtures and fittings, along with the sensitive restoration of unique original rooms and features.

Resulting in an improved learning environment, the investment will enable enhanced interactions between the Institute’s various stakeholders such as students, staff and industry partners. Creating modern open spaces for these interactions will contribute to the Institute’s ambition to further develop as a hub for inter disciplinary learning.

Adrian Smith, Project Manager, Estates Services commented: “The remodelling and refurbishment has transformed the navigation around the building creating new simple accommodation which fits comfortably within the existing terrace buildings. A new extension is connected to the original building with a glazed link which makes a clear distinction between old and new. The building is now more accessible through the installation of lifts, ramps and enlarged doorways.

“The energy efficiency and sustainability of the building will be much improved now through new heating and lighting, improved thermal performance of the roof and basement.

Institute of Transport Studies interior
Professor Richard Batley, Director of ITS, commented: “We are delighted with the results of this re-development, and greatly looking forward to moving back into our old – but much enhanced – home. In combination with this investment in our estate, we have invested time and effort in substantively refreshing both our taught postgraduate portfolio and our research and innovation strategy. Taken together, these various enhancements consolidate the Institute’s position as a world leader in transport-related teaching and research”.

This project is part of the University’s wider £520m investment aimed at creating a world-class campus to support its ambitious plans to drive cutting-edge research and excellent student education.
