Queen Mary University of London, Engineering Facilities Redevelopment
Located at the university’s London Mile End campus, the contemporary redevelopment creates a collaborative and flexible learning environment
The redevelopment of the School of Engineering & Materials Science and School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science 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 specialist flexible teaching, research and laboratory spaces offering a stimulating and collaborative learning environment. A complete refurbishment of the entrance area has provided a modern and welcoming gateway.
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 scheme was delivered with adjacent facilities remaining fully operational throughout.
The university's 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.
