The Grove Building is the main base for the School of Medicine. Due to changing teaching requirements, new technology and increased student numbers, a programme of adaptations and refurbishment was necessary and this was carried out over two phases.
The 2010 refurbishments comprised installing aluminium double glazed windows, the conversion of an old store into a postgraduate common room and the conversion of a redundant laboratory into teaching staff offices.
The 2011 works comprised the refurbishment of toilets throughout the building, redecoration of common areas, the conversion of a former laboratory into a clinical skills teaching area, and the conversion of another laboratory into a medical lecture room.
Colourful, hard wearing but inexpensive finishes have been used to enhance the environment for students and staff.
