About the event

Kier was appointed by the University of Derby to deliver a new business school in the heart of Derby city centre. The development of Derby Business School kickstarts the University’s City Masterplan which aims to develop its footprint in the city and improve connectivity across its sites.

The new business school is 9317m2 and is planned to include a 233-seat auditorium, a stock market financial trading room, a creativity lab, an extended reality (XR) suite and a range of social collaborative study spaces and quiet contemplation areas. The school will also feature a café on the ground floor. The open design will provide air circulation and natural light.

The new building is projected to be the study base for more than 6,000 students by 2030 and will provide a link between local businesses and the wider community. Two levels of the building will be open to the public, allowing students, academics, researchers and University staff to work alongside businesses co-located in the school as well as with the wider business community. This will support and nurture growth, knowledge exchange and idea generation.
