Business School & Growth Hub, Gloucester
The new £17m flagship Business School and Growth Hub building for the University of Gloucestershire is a central part of the wider development of the University’s Oxstalls Campus. It provides 5,500m2 of purpose-built learning spaces to accommodate the expanding student population and academic offering, whilst consolidating the University’s presence within Gloucester.
As the most significant element of the campus masterplan, the Business School forges links to the remodelled sports facility and new student accommodation, as well as including significant areas of meadowland, hard landscaping, car parking and making provision for a future phase of development of approximately 5,000m2.
Austin-Smith:Lord have worked well alongside a challenging client to deliver an outstanding design that we are all looking forward to acting as a new home for the Business School and Growth Hub and a catalyst for future planned investment at our Gloucester campus.
