TEaM workplace tours continue to be a hit.
In Early February over 50 Technical staff from across the university attended a BSF Facility tour. The tour highlighted the varied and diverse research that’s taking place and the staff gave some very interesting background and information into the research and the facility. The Technical staff who attended the tour got a full tour of the facility. Thanks to all the staff from the BSF for giving such an interesting and informative tour.

On the morning of 24rd March 2017, Dean Whiteside, Buildings and Operations Manager, gave the opportunity to TEaM members to have access to an ‘exclusive’ behind the scenes tour of this wonderful transformation.
