UEL's new Stratford Library
18 Oct

Work starts on state-of-the-art library in Stratford

Building work has commenced on a state-of-the-art library facility at the University of East London’s Stratford campus, marked this week with a ceremonial ‘turning of the turf’ in front of guests from the University and construction company, Volker Fitzpatrick. Paul Chopra, UEL Stratford Campus Library Manager, and Andy Stoney, Operations Director at Volker Fitzpatrick, took a dig at the site before a bulldozer showed them it should be done.

Due for completion in early 2013, the £14.8 million Stratford Library will transform the experience of UEL students from the borough of Newham and beyond with an attractive, inspirational and flexible learning and research environment.

The Library will boast the latest technology with an advanced digital library, self-issue and return services and an automatic book sorter. The interior will be enhanced by a landscaped internal garden situated within a central atrium.

Paul Chopra said: “It’s great to see building work commence on this exciting new project which, when it opens in 2013, will add so much to the student experience for those studying at Stratford.”
