Coventry University development commended at IStructE Annual Awards
Waterman is delighted that the redevelopment of Coventry University’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities received a commendation in the ‘Education’ category at the Institution of Structural Engineers Annual Awards in the Midland Regional Group.
Established to give recognition for notable structural design or construction achievements throughout the UK, this year’s Midland regional event took place on Thursday 11 November at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.
Coventry University’s stunning scheme amalgamates several existing buildings within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities campus through a new build centralised hub. Combining extensive refurbishment and regeneration, the project also incorporates a new modern four-storey steel superstructure.
Home to a range of state-of-the-art technologies, studios and equipment, the development 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.
Anticipated to complete in summer 2022, the campus 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.
Congratulations to all involved with this incredible project!
