Construction of a new state-of-the-art building at Leeds Beckett University's Headingley Campus will provide an iconic home for the Carnegie School of Sport, co-locating its highly specialist teaching and research laboratories.
The new 90,000 sq ft building comprises 40 teaching and research laboratories, five lecture theatres, a health and wellbeing studio as well as a covered rooftop 60m sprint track.
This facility provides a base for undergraduate, post graduate and research programmes as well as providing a hub for elite athletes who make use of the University's sports performance expertise.
The building also houses two world class environmental chambers which can mimic different altitudes and environments and are capable of achieving temperatures of between -30 degrees C to +50 degrees C, relative humidity of 15% to 95% and altitudes up to 8,000m.
These chambers support the University's ongoing research with the Centre for Human Performance which focuses on performance in extreme environments, supporting military and sporting partners.
