Located at the university’s central London campus, the contemporary redevelopment creates a collaborative and flexible learning environment
The redevelopment of the engineering facilities at the Queen Mary University of London constitutes the first phase of a major programme of work aimed at transforming the university’s campus.
The Engineering Department’s existing five-storey 1960’s building was tired and dated, not conducive to modern learning. Pascall+Watson’s intervention has realised a series of state-of-the-art flexible teaching, research and laboratory spaces offering a stimulating and collaborative learning environment.
Central to the design concept was the creation of a sense of openness, cohesion with the existing building and flexibility, ensuring future departmental changes could be readily accommodated. The fast-track scheme was delivered with minimum disruption, the adjacent facilities remaining fully operational throughout.
The university’s primary objective is to provide students with an exceptional quality of teaching, preparing them for their future careers. The new engineering department has set the benchmark in enabling this to happen.
