Dyson School of Design Engineering Opens
Yesterday the new Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London, was officially opened for business.
The School provides contemporary learning facilities for undergraduate, masters and doctoral research students. Pascall+Watson worked closely with the university to design and deliver the school which is dedicated to engineering innovation and entrepreneurship.
The BREEAM rated facility brings life to the redundant historic building, which was recently acquired from the Science Museum. The refurbishment and reconfiguration of the space provides teaching and research facilities including flexible workshops, laboratories, exhibition space, open forum lecture areas and a cafeteria in the public realm.
Sam McKenney, Operations Manager at Dyson School of Design Engineering commented:
“Pascall+Watson brought both a deep sympathy for the historic significance of the existing edwardian structure and an appreciation for the new engineering and design function of the building. Their design has been a synthesis of these factors, which will deliver a new home for world-leading research and teaching in the field”
