The new Learning and Teaching Building is another commission from the University of Winchester; forming another part of the emerging Design Engine masterplan for King Alfred’s Campus. The new 1800sqm facility provides additional state of the art teaching spaces for lectures and group study and adjoins the existing 1970’s St Edburga Building with a glazed atrium link.
As part of a second phase, the St Edburga building is completely refurbished, with new thermally efficient external cladding and a brand new rooftop extension, which transforms the original building. The new buildings combine to form a new landscaped Piazza space fronting the Sparkford Road entrance.
Carried out with contractor Geoffrey Osborne Ltd, the new buildings were delivered on a fast-track programme, and use natural ventilation facade design and technologies which contribute to an overall BREEAM excellent project.
