St Helena Campus, University of Derby

St Helena refurbishment is a £6.7m project to conserve and refurbish the Grade II listed 1911 campus, providing state of the art facilities for nursing and health students along with a new suite for the Institute in Sustainable Engineering (IISE). New facilities include teaching rooms, IT suites, a clinical skills suite, a mock ward and an immersive simulation suite.

Keen to conserve all historic elements, The University of Derby has provided the building, with a new life as a centre of learning and business development within the local community. The team have reused and retained the historic fabric of the building or substituted items with replica materials and styles.

"We are delighted with our new facility, the project team have done a fantastic job in creating such a nice working environment..."
