Solent University Southampton
Posted on 12th Feb 2016 by Paul Groves
We are please to announce that Interserve has chosen Jorgensen as the painting contractor for this new project at Solent University in Southampton.
The stunning new Ã�Â£30 million building is well under way and painting is due to start shortly.
The new structure will sit alongside the Sir John Everett Millais building and will be linked to the rest of the East Park Terrace site through the atrium, opening up the campus for easier circulation. Designed by Scott Brownrigg and due to be completed in late 2016, a spectacular atrium will form the central hub of the new teaching block and conference facilities. Measuring 18 metres across and 80 metres long, it will include a multifunctional suspended 'pod' with a viewing platform above.
The new building will provide centrally located lecture and seminar facilities, together with social and flexible space for exhibitions, shows and events. It will have state-of-the-art lighting, acoustics and equipment. Beneath the atrium there will be a series of underground lecture theatres, one of them arranged in an oval 'Harvard' style.
