Successful renovation of the IC
Over summer, EFM was instrumental in renovating the Information Commons (IC) in response to feedback from the National Student Survey 2016.
After a decade and 13million visitors, users reported a few wear and tear issues which are now resolved – bringing the interior back into a vibrant and light place to study. We’re committed to improving our learning and teaching spaces and this is just one example of a successful, timely project.
It was completed after the summer exam period and reopened just before the start of a new academic term in September 2017.
Students asked for a makeover, more study spaces and new furniture, all of which has been addressed in the project. More chairs were key to the renovation and it can now easily accommodate larger numbers of students at peak times.
The makeover has been well received by students and staff.
