Engineering Building demolition

A reminder that work continues this week on the demolition of the Engineering Building. The demolition will be carried out in phases and should be complete by late July.   

The link between the Polly Vacher (formally Systems Engineering) and Engineering buildings is anticipated to be removed by mid-July.   

Where possible, teaching and other campus activities are being relocated away from the construction area during the Quiet and Exam periods. 

If relocation is not possible, work will be restricted and noise levels will be closely monitored by the project team.  

Footpaths and entrances 

All footpaths will remain open and we will alert staff and students if this is likely to change. 

The entrance and exit points of the Polly Vacher building will largely remain open as they are currently, with some minor and/or temporary alterations as the demolition progresses.  

All building entrance and exit points in the nearby JJ Thomson and Mathematics and IT Services buildings will remain open as usual.

The site will become the grounds of the University’s new Health & Life Sciences facility, a brand new purpose-built teaching and research facility for the School of Biological Sciences. Construction for the new building will begin this autumn, with the project set for completion in 2019.  

Please contact Robert Shankland for further information.
