As work on the new Engineering building at UWE Bristol begins, a turf cutting ceremony involving Construction Director Neil Dorrington and Senior Site Manager Selina Elmasry from contractors BAM, and Pro Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Environment and Technology at UWE Bristol Professor Paul Olomolaiye, was held on 15th January to mark its construction.
The state-of-the-art facility will be home to more than 1600 undergraduate and postgraduate students and 100 academic and technical staff from a wide variety of engineering disciplines. The building will also host specialist workshops, study areas and laboratories.
Work is due to be completed in summer 2020, with the facility contributing
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.
More information about the turf cutting ceremony can be found on the staff intranet, while more about the Engineering building can be found on the project site on the staff intranet and the UWE Bristol website.
