Loughborough University required a strong architectural solution to achieve an energy efficient form with excellent connectivity internally between the new building and existing space.
The new building is a part of the Engineering Faculty and incorporates a new 1,760sqm / 19,000sqft building linked to the existing Sir Frank Gibb building, originally designed in 1969, which has been refurbished.
The scheme has a broad sustainability strategy and orientates the new building to shade a large proportion of the existing elevation and will also reduce the amount of external envelope construction.
The new centre is designed to create spaces where academics and researchers will work in an inter-disciplinary manner, and incorporates new ways of working - more usually associated with the corporate sector.
