Liverpool John Mores University (LJMU) has begun the process of mapping around six major capital investment programmes across the city centre.

Planning applications are being drawn up for the development of the Student Life and Sports Building on Copperas Hill, the extension to the Aldham Robarts Library and the refurbishment of Tithebarn Street.

The University has also named Senate Group as the main contractor to deliver the Liverpool Business School, which is due to open in September 2018.

The development involves the refurbishment of two listed Georgian buildings, which once complete will create a student hub and business space. Under the plans, the interior of the building will showcase its history, combining historical details with modern features.

Commenting on the build, Tim Nichol, Executive Dean for the Liverpool Business School, said: "This is an exciting development in the next phase of the Liverpool Business School and firmly roots us in the heart of this historic quarter of the city."

"The University headquarters has had a presence in Rodney Street for over 30 years and it is certainly fitting that the creation of this new Management Development Centre for our professional and corporate clients will sit alongside our existing executive offices."
