The Creative Arts Building, Leeds Beckett University

Faithful+Gould's award winning expertise in the Education sector and Media and Arts facilities is currently being further demonstrated through our role as Cost Manager to Leeds Beckett University on their flagship Creative Arts Building, in the heart of Leeds.

The 1,850 students and staff currently spread across the city, will come together in their new iconic cultural hub, designed to enhance the transferable skills of their students through bespoke specialist facilities and collaborative social learning spaces. The aim of the Creative Arts Building on the wider community is that it will also inspire the public creating an invaluable facility within the heart of the city.

This £80m new build, 14,500m2 facility within the Civic Quarter and behind the Civic Hall will bring together the faculties of performing arts, film, fashion and music and demonstrates the University's commitment to sustainability as the University and the wider design team target achieving BREEAM "Excellent".

“The Creative Arts Building will reflect the creativity, inspiration and dynamism of the subject areas for which it will be an exciting new home.”
