University of Liverpool School of Management
The Management School at the University of Liverpool is successful and highly regarded. Student numbers are increasing rapidly. To meet this demand, Austin-Smith:Lord were commissioned in October 2013 to develop the management school to accommodate 450 additional students by re-organising and extending the existing facilities.
The project vision was to embrace modern methods of teaching in a state-of-the-art new facility that encourages collaborative and social learning. The accommodation also includes a case pit for debate and discussion and a trading floor.
The new extension is a highly sustainable, BREEAM Excellent building.
The University of Liverpool has a distinguished architectural history. The best buildings on the campus are confident expressions of their age. The pieces form a coherent whole by respecting the context. The vision for the new extension as the third component in the evolution of the Management School is to modernise, raise the profile and rebrand to meet market expectations.
