The new five-storey building will be in the centre of the university’s Frenchay Campus, adjacent to student union and plaza facilities that are currently under construction.

The concrete frame structure incorporates large glazed expanses to maximise natural light. Teaching facilities include a 300-seat tiered double-height lecture theatre and a further two Harvard–style lecture theatres, as well as two simulated court rooms and a trading room.

ISG regional managing director Rob Martin said: “UWE Bristol has significant built environment expertise as the university of choice for students looking to pursue a career in the industry. Working in partnership on this landmark building is an exciting proposition, providing the opportunity to implement many of the most advanced methodologies used in modern construction.

“The project team will foster strong links with the student community, with a wealth of training and work experience opportunities for UWE Bristol students. The Faculty of Business & Law is a true legacy project, proving an outstanding addition to the Frenchay Campus and an invaluable learning resource for the university.”
