A multi-purpose substation with covered cycle parking.
The university is building a new multi-purpose substation on Campus West. The current substation is within the physics building and the new one is located at the south of this building on the edge of the current car park.
The building will be single storey with a green roof and also offer covered cycle parking with space for trailers.
The project will complete in early 2021.
The substation location has been strategically planned to assist us with any future development of the west campus.
Due to the location, there will be the loss of seven car parking spaces. However the total number of spaces on campus west will increase when the former Smith and Nephew building on Church Lane opens in spring 2021.
