A LEADING Solihull construction company has been chosen to deliver brand new cutting edge medical facilities at Keele.
Greswolde Construction has begun work on the £2.8 million extension of the Anatomy Skills Facility in The David Weatherall building at Keele University, with an estimated completion date of August.
“There are very few universities which have the kind of facilities we are building here and we have already had a great deal of interest from across the UK in booking training places even before this is built,” said Business Manager Margaret Hollins.
It will allow the School of Medicine to join a select group of institutions offering leading edge facilities to attract surgeons from across the UK.
“Our priority will, as always, be to ensure the safety of students, staff and visitors and to minimise disruption during the project.” said Malcolm Priest, MD of Solihull-based Greswolde Construction, which last year completed a £2.3 million nursery on campus and were also responsible for a £2.3 million Chemistry Laboratory in 2009.
State of the art audio-visual and video capture technology, video editing suites and secure live dissection broadcasts will also be available to give students an experience of real human physiology at a level not offered in many British medical schools.
