Salford Gateway Building – Salford University
JBC has substantially completed works on the Salford Gateway Building at Salford University. The state-of-the-art £55m building will transform student life at the University of Salford. The ‘Gateway Project’ will provide a distinctive, aesthetically pleasing entrance to the campus from Salford Crescent railway station. Facilities will include a theatre, recording and photography studios, café areas, performance and rehearsal spaces, computer suites and lecture theatres.
Green spaces and paved areas outside the Gateway Project will create a relaxing area where staff, students and local people can sit and take time out from a busy day. Public performances will also take place on the grounds (subject to the local weather!). In line with the University’s commitment to the environment, the building will be sustainable and energy-efficient with a target of achieving an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating (the standard environmental assessment method for buildings).
The investment is part of wider ongoing plans to create a world-class campus for staff and students.
