This is a 7,920 square metre building comprising teaching spaces, research laboratories, workshops, computer suites, offices and cafe, and is located on the existing university campus. It is a deep-plan building on a roughly triangular footprint.
Environmentally, the inclusion of chimneys within the heart of the plan has helped the building to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. Structurally, the choice of concrete works well, offering both a robust and beautiful quality of finish to the interior spaces.
