Make Architects won the OJEU competition to design a new building for the School of Veterinary, Medical and Sciences together with the School of Biosciences for The University of Nottingham’s agricultural campus at Sutton Bonington, to house a mixture of laboratories and office space.The design brief envisions a new identity for the campus befitting its status as a leading educational establishment and assist in transforming the site into a wholly sustainable and people focused development.
Design is sensitive to its rural setting, yet with a future-proof infrastructure for the researchers, academics and students who will use it daily.
I has highly flexible floorplates and impressive sustainable credentials which include locally sourced materials such as timber and pre-fabricated straw panels.
According to David Patterson, the Sutton Bonington site presents the perfect opportunity to marry high-tech facilities with a rural location which we have embraced within the design. On the other hand, Tim Brooksbank, Development Director at The University of Nottingham’s Estate Department, said: “The design is stunningly simple and will set a new standard for future development on the campus.”
