Client: University of Wolverhampton
Location: Springfield Campus, Wolverhampton
New School of Architecture & The Build Environment is located on the former Springfield Brewery site. Its redevelopment is part of the £100m Springfield Campus. The 7,900 square metre build will be three storeys high and looks to incorporate as much heritage of the Listed Building as possible and add new structures that will reflect the site’s historic industrial surroundings.
The project will incorporate a mix of pre-cast white concrete panels, bronze metal cladding and glazing. A saw-tooth roof will echo the historic industrial building that once stood on the site.
The building will contain specialist teaching and social learning spaces, design studios, specialist labs, multi-disciplinary workshops, lecture theatre, café, offices, meeting rooms, ICT rooms, and a top floor super studio with double height ceilings.
