UWE Bristol’s new multi-million pound engineering building has moved a step closer to completion – construction has reached the top floor!

A topping out ceremony was held on Tuesday 17th September to mark the occasion, with staff and students joining partners from contractors BAM and architects AHR to sign their names on a timber beam at the very top of the building. Head of the Department of Engineering Design and Mathematics Dr Lisa Brodie can be seen adding her signature above.

Due for completion in summer 2020, the facility will contribute to the University’s vision of being one of the top engineering schools in the country through promoting multi-disciplinary, collaborative learning and supports the predicted increase in demand for skilled engineering graduates across the region.
