The new School of Medicine at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, is now open after an extensive building process came to an end.
The university’s Chelmsford campus, which is located on Bishop Hall Lane to the north east of the city centre, already played host to various libraries, departments and teaching spaces for other subjects and disciplines.
But now that the School of Medicine is complete, it will be a jewel in the campus’ crown. Work on the £20m building began back in May 2017, and healthcare organisations in the Chelmsford area have been helping the university plan the new School.
It features a range of top-notch features for medical students to use, including teaching spaces and lecture halls. It also includes specialist facilities particular to the medical profession, such as an anatomy suite.
Not only is it a big plus for the university, the arrival of the School of Medicine will also have an impact on the wider area. As the first medical school in the whole of Essex, the site is playing a key role in providing education and training to those who will in the coming years go on to graduate as doctors and take up roles in hospitals and other medical establishments around the region and beyond.
The popular Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre on Victoria Road in the north of the city centre has undergone a revamp.
As part of the work, most of the existing centre has been demolished – meaning that local residents can enjoy a brand new state of the art facility. The new parts of the centre are linked to the refurbished older parts – including the sports hall – via a series of walkways.
Work on the project began in August 2017. The new centre contains a whole host of updated facilities, including a modernised lane-based swimming pool with dimensions of 25 metres by 10, a gym with over 100 stations, health studios designed for fitness classes, and more. The ice rink, meanwhile, has received a range of new support accommodation.
n addition to these upgrades, the new centre contains better changing rooms, a new cafe, and facilities specifically for children such as a soft play area and a party space for birthdays and other events. For those who want to have a fun family day out, meanwhile, the flume and splash area will ensure that everybody can enjoy the new development no matter what their age might be.
