Austin-Smith:Lord completes £20m Teesside uni building

  • Comment

Austin-Smith:Lord has unwrapped this learning and teaching building at Teesside University in Middlesborough


The new £20 million four-storey teaching block features learning spaces, conference facilities, multi-purpose areas for reception, exhibition and events, classrooms and a large lecture theatre.

The 1,476m² scheme forms part of Austin-Smith:Lord’s £30 million masterplan for the newly-pedestrianised campus.

Mike Yates, director of Austin-Smith:Lord, said: ‘The new building is about more than just upgrading the facilities, it has a strategic purpose to raise the profile of the University, and project its aspirations and values by providing an exemplary environment for students and staff.

‘The Curve provides a physical and symbolic embodiment of Teesside University’s ethos to be a leader in higher education.’

Malcom Page, chief operating officer of Teesside University, added: ’The Curve is a stunning building and the campus as a whole has been transformed – it is completely unrecognisable compared with how it looked 18 months ago.’
