The new facility, due to open in August 2015, is designed by architects Sheppard Robson and will serve as a gateway to the University’s Molineux Campus. The linear, six storey building will be embedded on one side into a seven metre high embankment. At approximately 6,000 square metres gross internal area, the building will house teaching facilities for the Business School, including undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education, plus offices, meeting rooms and a café. Break-out spaces will be connected vertically via staircases and a series of atria to provide a high degree of transparency and visual connection across the different floors. The break-out spaces will be provided with ‘smart’ furniture for laptop and tablet use.
