Architectural practice RMJM has unveiled plans for a new student centre at the University of Bedfordshire.
Ramboll Whitbybird will act as civil and structural engineer and Couch Perry & Wilkes will provide the mechanical and electrical engineering.
Robin Dryer, project associate at RMJM said: “The design team consulted widely with university staff and students to create a vibrant and inspiring contemporary campus centred on a single location for the University of Bedfordshire. We’ve also taken great care to design a sustainable low energy building that is naturally ventilated, sensitive to the local townscape and targeting BREEAM excellent.”
Pending approval by Luton Borough Council, the building will replace the existing student facilities, and provide learning spaces, a 400-seat lecture theatre and exhibition space.
The project is the first phase of a £70m masterplan for the University of Bedfordshire.
