The Challenge

The new building is on a highly constrained city centre campus, located between two gateway buildings to the University. 

Our Solution

The use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) meant that all structural elements could be fabricated off-site, delivered and installed on site, reducing the overall construction programme.
