This scheme provided a Library and teaching development in the centre of the University of Kent’s campus in Canterbury.
The new extension and refurbishment provides various learning and support spaces. The open access teaching floor includes a lecture theatre with over 200 seats, exhibition space, 6 seminar rooms, 2 digital classrooms, group rooms, a conference catering and resource facility and a café. These additions increased the previous size by 5,000m2.
A ‘Find a study space’ service has been included in the Library to let students know onscreen where there are free spaces. The library has four entrances allowing easy access from whatever part of the university you are travelling from.
This scheme was proudly awarded the 2017 Graphisoft UK BIM, Public Sector of the Year Award.
