Coventry University shortlisted at IStructE Annual Awards
Waterman is delighted that Coventry University has been shortlisted in the education category at the Institution of Structural Engineers Annual Awards in the Midland Regional Group. The awards recognise notable structural design or construction achievements throughout the UK.
The project amalgamates several existing buildings within Coventry University’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities campus through a new build centralised hub, combining extensive refurbishment and regeneration, alongside a new modern four-storey steel superstructure.
Home to a range of state-of-the-art technologies, studios and equipment, the project combines the full refurbishment of the Maurice Foss building, Graham Sutherland Tower and Workshops and, the former Boiler House, with the co-ordination of a new four-storey steel superstructure located in the middle. The new facilities will feature a hyper studio designed for cross-disciplinary projects and immersive studios with cutting-edge technologies, enhancing the faculty’s creative, teaching and learning spaces in a unique environment.
The campus, which is anticipated to complete in summer 2022, has remained partially operational throughout periods of the construction in which our team have provided structural and civil engineering services to the main contractor, McLaughlin & Harvey Ltd.
The winners will be announced at an award ceremony on 11th November 2021 at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham.
