Progress of RVC projects

The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has released pictures of current development work at the Hawkshead campus. The five images show work on the new learning resources centre and the new large-animal clinical centre. According to the RVC, the learning resources centre will include teaching rooms, seminar rooms, a library reading room and IT facilities. The clinical centre will replace current facilities which, the RVC says, have become worn and unsuitable.

BUILDING H52 - Phase 1 of the new large-animal clinical centre (to replace scattered, worn and unsuitable current facilities): a south elevation with seminar rooms, night-duty facilities, etc in the wing to the west, hospital reception and teaching facilities in the middle, and the patient-receiving hall to the right. The imaging & diagnostics block is behind this block.

BUILDING H52 - Phase 1 of the new large-animal clinical centre: the central control room of the imaging & diagnostics block under construction. In due course the results from various imaging units (eg scintigraphy, cardiology, ultrasound, X-ray and CT scanner) will be gathered here: students can then watch procedures, learn to read results, handle the images, ... Fund-raising is continuing for more specialist equipment.
