Arts Building

Project Detail

The Arts Building was opened in 1978 and designed by architects ABK.

Since opening has been the home of Histories and Humanities. The Arts Building is the biggest building on campus and has some of the largest lecture theatres.

In the last two years the building has got some cosmetic upgrades which has greatly enhanced the open areas and corridors. Approaching its 50th anniversary we are upgrading part of the main electrical system that has served the building so well over the years.

For safety this requires the closing of the building for a two - week period 26/7/21 – 6/8/21. Signage will be erected at each entry point to assist building users with any queries during the closure period.

The design consultants for this project are J. V Tierney who have long been associated with design in some of our most historic buildings in college.

While the works will not be invisible to most people it is part of the building critical electrical infrastructure which will meet the requirement of the building users well into the future.
