The University of Bath announced today that the Department of Psychology and Institute for Policy Research (IPR) have now completed their move into 10 West.

The building, designed by Bath alumnus Charles Jordan of AWW, has been praised by Professor Bas Verplanken, Head of Department of Psychology: “The building is fabulous! It is pleasant and spacious with a design that works very well in every area.”

“The way that Charles worked with us enabled us to implement some ideas about how we think a department works optimally.

“One idea was the integration of academic staff, PhD students and research fellows. Today all these folk were walking and talking amongst each other and I am confident that this concept will really help us to establish a vibrant research culture.”

The newest member of IPR, James Harle, said:

“I feel very lucky to have joined the IPR at the same time as the move to 10 West. It is very light and airy and I’m looking forward to visiting the roof terrace. This is a busy and exciting time for the Institute and the building will provide us with a great working environment.”
