UCA Announced as Education Estates Award Finalist
Located at the university’s Farnham campus, the 1,000m² building accommodates students studying performing arts, film studies and music composition & technology, with a multitude of cutting-edge technological equipment.
The recognition reflects the passion, direction and support that the university has shown throughout the design and construction process. Their approach has inspired the staff, students and design team to co-create, explore and collaborate and has led to our successful long-standing relationship.
The Education Estates awards celebrate excellence in the built environment across the UK. This year’s winners will be revealed at the annual gala dinner in October.
Nigel Craddock, Pascall+Watson's Education Sector Lead, commented:
“Since our appointment to develop the 10-year strategic masterplan we have worked continuously with the university to design a diverse range of facilities, across its four campuses. This nomination is a testament to the senior team and governing body who nurture strong relationships, have a proactive culture and understand and are committed to the underlying principle that outstanding design enhances learning and well-being, for the students in their care”
Samantha Brewer, Pascall+Watson Architect & Project Lead, said:
“Prior to working for Pascall+Watson, I was a student of the School of Architecture at UCA Canterbury. Having progressed with the university from a student to a working professional dynamic, it has always been a pleasure to work with and alongside them. The university constantly strives to provide the best facilities for their creative student cohort by using a wholly collaborative process throughout all stages of design. The Film & Media Centre project was led by creative, artistic and highly skilled academics, whose input throughout was enthusiastic and insightful”
