Art, Architecture & Design Building
University of Lincoln
Lindum completed a new build for the University of Lincoln's new Art, Architecture and Design facility. The five storey, 4500m2 building is positioned to the east of the existing structure, which received numerous design plaudits.
The new build extends the University's Art, Architecture and Design faculty by providing studio spaces, laboratories, workshops, internal and rooftop gallery spaces, seminar spaces and circulation spaces.
The impressive building comprises overhanging balconies, brick features and a glass atrium. The structure has a complicated external design with white brick and mortar features, giving it an impressive, striking appearance. When working with these special materials extra care had to be taken such as making sure each brick remained clean so that it met the client's requirements.
The project was completed to the highest standards, whilst allowing the thriving University campus to operate as normal, thanks to our dedicated efforts. With 4000 pedestrians passing each day we installed a zebra crossing at the site entrance and employed a general duties man who policed the perimeter and managed/coordinated all deliveries.
Design build contracts of this nature require a high level of teamwork, co-operation and professionalism between all design and build parties involved. We worked closely with the design team from the outset to spot problems and dealt with them accordingly and efficiently.
The project was completed to the agreed budget.
