Complete refurbishment of this ground floor department, including replacing all windows, increasing the area of glazing to front elevation and creation of an entirely new entrance which ties the building to the new main entrance to the university.
The project, which entailed working around a live data centre, included maximising the potential of the generous floor-to-ceiling height by introducing a mezzanine floor creating an additional open access study area. Overall, the reconfiguration of the space and the addition of the mezzanine has increased the number of computer spaces from 244 to 400.
