Case study

Exeter University

The brief was to provide bespoke modular solution for an un-used courtyard space.
We worked in collaboration with the clients architect and main contractor to
deliver the building as specified and on schedule.

The solution

The logistics of the project required careful planning. The modules were designed to be craned in for site
connection, so the project had all of the benefits of an off-site construction to allow for the continued
smooth running of the university. Delivery took place at the weekend for minimal disruption.

The finished scheme included a multipurpose space with a café, open plan seating / study area and separate
meeting rooms. The vision was to provide a modern industrial feel with exposed vents and ductwork so the
mechanical and electrical design was critical from both a functional and aesthetic perspective.

The result

The exterior cladding and striking grey aluminium windows and doors echoed the industrial feel of the
building. The issue of available light in the courtyard was addressed by designing in roof lights across the
space and placing windows at desk height to channel natural light directly in to the study areas.

University meeting rooms

The brief to create multiple self-contained meeting / study spaces with a link in to the existing campus. The space available was enclosed by high walls on three sides so we designed in large areas of glazing both on the exterior and interior of the building to enable light, bright and inspiring spaces.
