Perfect home for designers

Design School building

New building provides perfect home for designers of tomorrow.

Work has been completed on the University’s striking new £21 million Loughborough Design School, further enhancing its position as a world leader in the field of design.

The 7,760m² building includes innovative teaching and lecture space, workshops, offices, research laboratories, design studios, computer and prototyping suites and areas for display and interaction. It brings together staff from the Department of Design and Technology, the Ergonomics Safety Research Institute (ESRI) and the Department of Ergonomics, who are now all part of the School.

Professor Tony Hodgson, Dean of the Loughborough Design School, said: “The new building provides the perfect home for the School and will become a significant centre for the design of ‘real world’ products, services and systems.”

The Design School was built by Shepherd Construction.
