The vast entrance atrium provides a central navigation point and a powerful welcome. The Phidias Lab allows students to showcase work in virtual design disciplines. Other bespoke facilities include the materials library, textile design studios, print and dye areas, workshop areas, postgraduate research space, lecture space, and studios for photography, graphic design, product design and fashion, with CAD computer laboratories.

The works package undertaken and installed consisted of British Gypsum Glasroc beam encasements, and British Gypsum partitions, bulkheads, and linings to rooflights and the Atrium.

The teaching environments and open plan areas were housed with Rockfon Tropic E15 in 600 x 600 mm and 1800 x 600mm throughout the University.

Enhanced acoustics were gained by the strategic placing of Rockfon Scholar 40mm thick acoustic wall panels in varying sizes and locations.
