John McAslan + Partners have been appointed by Lancaster University, the leading University in the North-West, to assist in the design and construction of a new home for the University's Engineering Department.
The competition winning scheme will deliver 4,720sqm of workshop, laboratory and office space in two concrete-framed wings set either side of a continuous, four-storey high atrium 'street'.
The proposal develops LU’s current masterplan, also by John McAslan + Partners. The selective demolition of a redundant sports centre will create an enlarged square in the heart of the campus, further enhancing the wider university environs.
Mark Swindlehurst, Director of Facilities at Lancaster University, said: “Lancaster has a good track record in delivering well designed and sustainable buildings for its staff and students. This new Engineering Building will be a great addition to our campus and we are delighted to be working with John McAslan + Partners who share our vision.”
