The seven-storey facility will replace the 1968 John Crank building on the university’s Middlesex campus.

The project was secured agisnt rival bids from BAM, Kier and Graham Construction.

Architect Penoyre & Prasad and engineer BDP designed the building, which will form one side of an open quad area at the Uxbridge campus, bounded by the Grade II-listed Central Lecture Block, the Brutalist-style Halsbury Building and the recently over-clad Hamilton Building.

New-look quad area with new teaching building

The design for the 80,000 sq ft building benefits from a mixed-mode ventilation approach, an optimised facade, ground source heat pumps and a roof-mounted PV array.

The facade will consist of mix of glazing and profiled ceramic panels with a translucent glass lantern for the fifth and sixth floors.
