Date: 20/08/2012. Story submitted by: F Campbell
Building work has started on a new project to create an £11.5 million teaching, learning and business space for the Management School at the University of Sheffield.
The University's Crookesmoor Building is being given a 21st century makeover to provide students and staff with contemporary, flexible, multi-purpose teaching spaces, that aim to 'inspire learning'.
The new facility will enable the school to offer scholarships for students who are talented and disadvantaged, carry out hard-hitting research to tackle real world problems and create a lasting legacy to help shape the future of the global economy.
Dean of the Management School Professor Keith Glaister said: "The Management School at Sheffield is at a crucial stage of its evolution. We have experienced dramatic growth in student numbers, increased our academic reputation in research and accreditations, and begun to climb the international rankings.
"Our new location in the refurbished Crookesmoor building will provide excellent facilities to help achieve our further ambitions. I welcome the support of alumni, individuals and organisations to take the School to the next level of success."
The Management School is the largest department in the University’s Faculty of Social Sciences and is home to more than 1,800 students. Its new home will include three lecture theatres and eight seminar rooms, superb conference and ICT facilities, attractive gardens, and improved parking.
The work is due to be completed by March 2013 and the school is planning to move in over Easter 2013.
