Plans to refurbish and significantly improve the home of the School of Design will commence in May.
The £4.4m investment, to reinvigorate spaces within the Clothworkers South building, is part of the School’s Colour Imaging Project. Various spaces across all floors of the building will undergo maintenance and refurbishment. New laboratories, exhibition areas and student spaces will be created.
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.
