Case Study - Peirson Study and Guidance Centre
HRH The Duke of Gloucester Opens the newly refurbished Peirson Study and Guidance CentreThe University of Worcester’s former library has been opened by the Queen’s Cousin, His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO.
The Duke, who is also the University’s Chancellor, officially opened the completely redeveloped Peirson Study and Guidance Centre at the University’s St John’s Campus today, in front of a host of guests.
Named after Edwin Peirson CBE, who served as Worcester College’s Principal from 1951 until 1978, the Peirson building hosted the University’s library for nearly 40 years.
Summit Electrical were invited by the University along with main contractor Speller Metcalfe following the successful completion of the project late last year. The project which was worth £385K to Summit Electrical was a fast track programme with many difficulties to overcome, however, with a fantastic team spirit and all round dedication from all involved including the University’s Capital Projects team the building was handed over with the highest commendation.
After the opening of The Hive, the country’s first joint university and public library, the Peirson building has been completely refurbished and transformed into a dedicated Study & Guidance Centre.
It provides over 390 places for group and silent study, as well as two computer suites for teaching. The Centre is also the hub for all of the University’s practical student services, including careers guidance, financial advice, earn as you learn opportunities, counselling and accommodation.
Professor David Green, University of Worcester Vice Chancellor, said: “Our students now have more spaces at which to study than ever before. At the St John’s Campus we have the Peirson Study and Guidance Centre, at the City Campus we have The Hive and next to the University Arena we have the excellent learning facilities of the Riverside building. The Peirson Study and Guidance Centre is proving very popular with our students and is a real centre for learning.”
