The new sports building will comprise of two sports halls, three fitness studios, a health and wellbeing gym, a strength and conditioning gym and high quality teaching facilities. Parking will also be available underneath the building.

Professor Graham Baldwin, Vice-Chancellor, Solent University said:

‘Since construction began in September 2017 at the ground breaking celebrations, the new sports building has transformed. It is now clear to see how the new building will transform East Park Terrace and our wider University campus.’

Jon Daines, Area Director, Morgan Sindall said:

‘We have now reached a key point in the build programme and we’re delighted to be marking this milestone with Solent University and our wider project team. The shape of the structure is now clear and you can begin to gain a sense of the striking landmark this building will form on campus once complete. We look forward to continuing to make good progress on the build and to delivering a brilliant facility in spring next year.’
