Students at the University of Wolverhampton have been
drawing up plans to redesign the Molineux Stadium and a former
brewery site as part of their final year projects.
The Civil Engineering students were tasked with creating new
ideas for the regeneration of the Springfield Brewery Site in
Wolverhampton, the redevelopment of Wolves’ Molineux Stadium or
high speed rail infrastructure.
The final year School of Technology
students will present their ideas at an exhibition and oral
presentation on Wednesday, 16 May 2012 at the Wolverhampton City
Campus from 6pm, in MC001. The exhibition is open to the
Peter Mills, Principal Lecturer in Civil Engineering, said: “We
have been really impressed by the way students have tackled the
brief and the ideas they have generated.
“While all the projects are different, the students have
addressed structural, transportation, environmental and commercial
management aspects of each project.
“For example, the groups looking at redeveloping the Molineux
had to justify any changes in use and present the business case, as
well as performing the traditional roles of the civil engineer in
ensuring the structural performance of any design.
“We look forward to seeing the students formally present their
solutions and summary posters will be on display in the foyer of
The briefs were open-ended so students were encouraged to be
creative and use their ingenuity.
To mimic a team working environment the designs were performed
in groups of five or six, with each student having a designated
role to play, as structural engineers, geotechnical engineers,
environmental consultants, project managers and transportation
