SOAS Glass Roof

Graham Construction and SOAS University of London have unveiled an ambitious curved glass roof for its new student hub

The £17.3m refurbishment of SOAS University of London has been delivered to house a new 1,000m² student hub which connects the university’s Grade II-listed North Block with the iconic Senate House.

Graham Construction used a 10-tonne telescopic crane to lower the 3m² curved glass panels into place atop the supporting steel structure. A perimeter gutter has been formed to collect rainwater, which is stored and reused within the building; a system that has only been retrofitted into a handful of Grade II-listed buildings in the country.

The project is expected to complete in June.
