New building for School of Management

New building for School of Management

Date: Tuesday 13 February 2018,  1.00pm to 3.00pm

Venue: 4 West Atrium, Level 1

The proposals for a new building for the School of Management are currently at the pre-planning stage and we should like to invite staff and students to a consultation on the plans. We would welcome your feedback which will be used to inform the design process and subsequent planning application.

The consultation is open to all staff and students. There will be an exhibition outlining the development proposals in the 4 West Atrium on Tuesday 13 February available to view from 11.00am until 4.00pm. Members of the Estates’ team, including the architect, will be available at the exhibition to talk about the plans and to answer any questions between 1.00pm to 3.00pm.

The proposals focus on land identified for development within the University’s current Campus Masterplan and the recent Place Making Plan adopted by B&NES. The proposals are in line with the Council’s Core Strategy and we have held pre-planning meetings with its Planning Department.

The facilities for teaching and research offered by our School of Management are widely dispersed across our Claverton Down campus. This building, if it receives planning consent, will enable the School to come together in one home, greatly improving interaction and efficiency. The plans are an essential element of the School’s ambition to become a global top 50 business school by 2025 (QS World Rankings).

The plans assume a gradual growth in the numbers of masters and doctoral students within the School over the period until 2026/27 with the number of undergraduate students remaining at the current level.

If you are unable to attend the event, you can view information online and submit your comments from 14 February at
