The new research, enterprise and teaching buildings will be home to some of the world’s most high-tech facilities and will include a variety of learning, study and collaboration areas, state-of-the-art labs, research facilities and social spaces.

When the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus opens, neighbouring communities and rail passengers at Bristol Temple Meads will be greeted by two glazed buildings, landscaped public spaces, and new pedestrian and cycle routes joining the city centre to the east of the city.

A consultation on the plans will run from 9 to 25 September, with the public being invited to find out more and share their view via an online survey, series of events and exhibitions.

Outline planning permission for the campus has already been granted and a public consultation on the detailed design of the student residential accommodation, located on the northern end (next to Brocks Bridge) of Temple Island, was held in April.

The new seven-acre campus will provide teaching, research and innovation space for 3,000 students, around 800 members of staff and external partners from business and the city's communities. It will have a clear focus on digital, business and social innovation.

The campus will be home to the University's new School of Management, its Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and much of its digital engineering activity. It will include the recently announced Bristol Digital Futures Institute and the Quantum Technology Innovation Centre.

Professor Guy Orpen, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor for New Campus Development, said: "We are excited to share our vision for the campus and look forward to hearing people's feedback.

"We are creating a dedicated space for collaboration and discovery where businesses, civic partners and the local community can work together with our students, academics and researchers.

"This meeting of minds will develop fresh perspectives and explore how we can innovate responsibly, create an inclusive economy that works for everyone and address some of the future’s big research questions."

The detailed designs show both the outside and inside of the main academic building, revealing an open and welcoming space.

Its ground floor will host exhibitions, public events such as lectures and film screenings, pop-up catering, a café and shop. A light-filled central foyer will span the full height of the five storeys above, which will be a mix of research, teaching and social spaces.

The foyer will be connected to a number of social and enterprise spaces located on the ground floor, which have been designed to put local communities at the heart of the building.

The buildings have been designed to be sensitive to the historical setting of Temple Quarter, while also reflecting the modern, innovative nature of the campus. For example, the use of textured masonry relates to the stone and brick qualities of the Floating Harbour and Bristol Temple Meads.

Above, evoking the idea of a lantern, a glazed façade with vertical aluminium fins for solar shading allow the building to reflect the city and the sky, changing to reveal the interior as the sun goes down.

The University has a commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030 and the new buildings on the Cattle Market site have been designed to support this with a number of eco-friendly elements incorporated into their design, such as rainwater harvesting, a biodiverse roof, solar panels and heat recovery systems.

The campus will be car-free and proposals include a new transport hub at the entrance to the Cattle Market site which could accommodate extended public bus services.

The development is part of a wider regeneration of the Temple Quarter area that will help create a new inclusive city district, contribute to economic growth and job creation, and new walking and cycling paths to improve connections between the city centre and the east of Bristol.

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
