The University of Leeds’ Estate Development Programme will see significant investment and “create a world-class campus at the heart of a vibrant city”.

The Language Centre, located in the historic Parkinson Building, has been significantly refurbished to create new state-of-the-art teaching facilities for both students and staff.

This exciting transformation ensures the Language Centre continues to provide high quality teaching and support to students and facilities for staff while also remaining a key gateway to the university for many international students.

The new facilities provide a modern and attractive learning environment with refurbished common and pastoral areas, a new reception/student support area together with breakout areas and private booths for group or individual study. New staff facilities include kitchen areas and breakout space.

The innovative teaching spaces benefit from new audio visual equipment and sector-leading technology to allow for collaborative teaching methods. Improved lighting and ventilation also make for a more comfortable and energy efficient environment.

G&T provides Project Management services on the University of Leeds Professional Services Consultancy Framework. The four year framework will cover new build, refurbishment of existing building, general repairs and maintenance works and listed buildings.

We are delighted that we can continue to grow and support the University as it continues to develop its estate across the city.

Associate Director, G&T
