The University of Bolton has officially gained access to their new building at Bolton Central, a learning environment tailored for contemporary business education. The £6 million development is set to become the centre for the university’s Institute of Management, housing the studies of 2,500 students and becoming home to over 60 staff. As refurbishment experts, Stoneforce completed work on the impressive five-story building on the corner of Great Moor Street and Newport Street, Managing Director Paul Smith handed over the flagship Bolton Central building to the President and Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor George E Holmes DL, who commented: “The new Institute of Management is one of many developments for the university and is a fantastic resource for students, particularly focusing on logistics and supply chain management; preparing graduates for jobs and opportunities at Logistics North.” Creating opportunities for students to gain real-life work experience while studying is a primary focus for the institution and the university hopes the new development will attract and connect many local businesses, harnessing the ongoing support The Business School provides to small and medium enterprises across the North West of England and beyond. Committed to both the town and its students, the major development in the heart of Bolton is set to unite the university and the local community and is yet another example of the institutions ongoing investment into student experience and teaching. Over the past 12 months, the university’s promise to its students and its teachers hasn’t gone unrecognised as it was announced as the number one university for student satisfaction in Greater Manchester in the National Student Survey 2017. It was also ranked 38 out of 128 institutions for teaching quality in The Sunday Times, entered The Guardian’s top 40 for teaching quality as well as achieved silver status in the government’s new Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) evaluation scheme of university teaching.
