The Vitruvius team are leading the development and construction of the project with architects Roberts Limbrick responsible for the overall design.
Vitruvius lead new University’s Learning Hub project
As the strategic partner for management through all stages Vitruvius will lead the project from initial strategic definition to handover for a smoother construction journey.
This includes defining the project brief, procuring the designer team, sub-consultants, main construction contractor (current stage) through to handover and occupancy evaluation in the next phases (following the RIBA process stages 0-7).
About the project
The design mirrors Graze Catering Hub – the recently completed new catering and flexible learning facility. Both in line with design principals established for use across the whole campus.
The future proof University Learning Hub combines newbuild with a refurbished library to create a two-storey building, accessible to students 24/7, 365 days a year.
The ground floor will provide a dynamic open plan space for students with a café and self-service kitchen. On this level students can access a range of support services such as the Innovation, Careers and Enterprise (ICE) team, Academic Registry, and Student Services.
The first floor houses the library, quiet study areas and modern classrooms.
Targeting environmental certification of ‘BREEAM Excellent’, green roofing and landscaping will ensure the building supports local biodiversity, making it sustainable for both students and the environment.
