Work commences on University of Leicester, Percy Gee East Wing extension

Construction has officially commenced on an ambitious £21 million extension to the University of Leicester's Students' Union building, with Pulse working with the University as Project Managers.

The important milestone was marked by a ground-breaking ceremony (pictured top right) attended by Professor Paul Boyle, President & Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester, Assistant City Mayor and Castle Ward Councillor Danny Myers from Leicester City Council, alongside members of the University’s Students’ Union and representatives from construction contractor, Stepnell.

Located at the heart of the University’s campus, the Percy Gee Building will undergo a significant transformation over the next few months. A new four-storey extension will provide a brand new glazed façade to the building, which will front onto the newly completed Fielding Johnson Square. This glazed façade provides a much more welcoming approach to the building, especially when lit up after dark. The extension will house facilities including a large, brand-new food court; double the amount of space for social learning; and a new informatics lab for the study of information science.
