Extensive refurbishment of 1960s building as well as extension, separated by atrium; for low cost environmental control benefits. Building programme involved morning service from one element to the other, with a brief spell of total closure (Summer 1997), with service offered elsewhere.
Campus learning resources centre, including computing teaching and open access; language centre (language laboratories and open access); library; and media suite (t.v. and sound studios)
Has since been sold to a private developer (August 2005), and will probably be demolished in due course.
