The University commissioned ADG to convert and regenerate the derelict church building to provide two lecture theatres, foyer and events space, gallery and exhibition venue in 1997.

The complex has been highly successful for both the University and the city as a whole, and is used for concerts, exhibitions, seminars, and lectures.

The project demanded the careful refurbishment of a good quality Victorian building combined with the insertion of modern facilities whilst retaining the original features. The longevity of the buildings internal finishes is testament to the designers skill at specifying robust materials that have withstood the test of time.
