Artist’s impressions have been released to show how the multi-million pound investment in Leeds University Business School (LUBS) will look when finished.
Phase one of the scheme – the refurbishment of teaching areas in Charles Thackrah building, with the addition of a new café – has been successfully completed.
The three-phase scheme commenced early this year and includes the construction of a new building in Mount Preston Street, adjacent to Bright Beginning Nursery. This will provide additional central teaching space, specifically four flat-floor teaching rooms, with a capacity for 100 people, and four teaching rooms, each providing capacity for 36 people.
This building, which forms phase two of the development, is expected to be completed in time for the start of the new academic year in October.
The final phase will be finished by the summer of 2020, following the construction of a new multi-storey teaching facility in Cloberry Street, shared by LUBS, the School of Law, the School of Languages and Central Teaching Space. Prominent features of the building, including a new Trading Room, teaching areas and Behavioural Laboratories, will provide more flexible and innovative ways of teaching.
