Salford University to start on £100m project this year

The University of Salford intends to start work on its £100 million campus overhaul this year.

The Greater Manchester institution has set out details of a 20-year plan to improve its facilities.

Construction of the £75m first phase will begin in 2011 with refurbishment and extension of the Chapman Building, and a new build arts building.

From next year, work is scheduled to begin on a series of open public spaces at Chapman Square and Station Square near to Salford Crescent Station.

Plans are also underway to develop self-contained student residences in the heart of the campus, overlooking Peel Park and the David Lewis Playing Fields.

Deputy vice-chancellor Dr Adrian Graves said: “Our plans will forever transform the campus and give our students access to outstanding facilities and an experience of unparalleled quality. Our staff will also benefit from state-of-the-art teaching and research, and a collaborative environment.”
