The refurbishment at Kingston University’s Knights Park Campus provides the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture with 9500sqm of new and improved facilities that better reflect the school’s outstanding reputation and competitive edge. The new building provides more collaborative working space for staff and students.
The design and build project was undertaken in full occupation. The project required a significant decant schedule, and ongoing noise, dust and vibration monitoring.
A phased approach to the works with a detailed decants schedule enabled activities to progress with minimal disruption to the campus. We provided a dedicated contact purely for any issues around noise, dust or vibration in order to address immediately. The phasing was undertaken floor by floor thus enabling containment as far as possible.
The final project delivered a 52% reduction in operational carbon emissions and also achieved BREEAM Excellent. Over 1,000sqm of flat roof has been put to work, providing outdoor teaching spaces, wildlife habitats and green roofs.
