The new building provides a facility that delivers an attractive, yet highly functional and flexible space, which
will adapt over time to the changing requirements of our pedagogical approaches and enable us to further enhance the excellence and impact of our research. Coventry University awarded the £37 million contract to BAM Construction. The five-storey, 120,000 sq ft building on Much Park Street in Coventry's city centre was completed in 2017.
Previous activity on the site included a 2nd archaeological dig. The first dig revealed a cellar and other underground rooms dating back to the 14th century. Spectacular images of the overall site were obtained during the dig.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge opened our new Alison Gingell Building Building in January 2018.
The £59 million building is transforming training opportunities for nurses, paramedics, midwives and other health professionals. It’s the only facility of its kind where students can learn to care for a patient at every stage of their healthcare experience; from paramedics arriving at their house and their subsequent ambulance journey, to their stay in hospital, through to their discharge and rehabilitation at home.
