The designer of the London Eye will be in Sheffield later at the official opening of a new university building.

University of Sheffield engineering graduate Dr John Roberts will be sharing his design secrets, which include white knuckle roller coaster rides such as the Pepsi Max Big One in Blackpool, when he speaks at the opening of the university’s new Pam Liversidge Building.

The £21 million Pam Liversidge Building, on the corner of Newcastle Street and Broad Lane, named in recognition of the achievements of one of the UK’s leading female engineers and industrial entrepreneurs, was completed earlier this year.

It houses two lecture theatres, several flexible teaching and study spaces with drop-in IT facilities, many engineering postgraduate students and Insigneo, Scentro and CISTIB, three of the university’s joint research ventures.
