Building progress

The refurbishment of the Fry building is progressing very well despite the fire in January 2018. The building is being attractively decorated throughout with careful attention to retain original features where possible, from beautifully tiled flooring to ornate door and lift surrounds. These features are blended with the modern style of the glass atrium, extending out into the courtyard facing Wills Memorial Building with a raised garden above the new lecture theatre. Outstanding spaces for teaching and research are also being completed to a high specification.

Alongside the refurbishment of the building, landscaping will provide further green space on campus, opening up the site and connecting the new main entrance to the core of the University Precinct. Plants for the northern and southern gardens have been specially selected so that the spaces are fragrant all year round.
