UWE ENGINEERING BUILDING

  • THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST OF ENGLAND (UWE), ENGINEERING PROJECT WILL DELIVER A NEW ACADEMIC BUILDING FOR THE UNIVERSITY WHICH WILL SUPPORT THEIR VISION OF PROMOTING MULTI-DISCIPLINARY COLLABORATIVE LEARNING AND REFLECT THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SUBJECT AREA IN THE REGIONAL ECONOMY.

  • The iconic building, to be located at the University’s main Frenchay campus, will accommodate up to 1,600 students and will establish a clear identity for the University’s engineering programmes.

    The building form is organised around a central atrium containing a generous provision of social learning spaces, workshops, laboratories and ‘design’ space, encouraging a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to help deliver the University’s vision for 21st Century engineering.

  • The design also features a hub for group study at the heart of the building, aimed at nurturing collaboration and creating a sense of place. Due to the importance placed on social learning spaces within the University’s brief, we have designed a building with an impressive use of natural light, promoting openness and visual excitement.


  • By creating open spaces across multiple stepping floor plates, the new building will provide long-term reconfigurable flexibility for the department, reflect the faculty’s ambition for delivering an excellent student experience, provide sector leading technical facilities and embrace the faculty’s commitment to sustainable practice.

    The project has been designed and operated to BIM Level two and aims to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
