Approach

BMJ Architects secured the commission for a ¬£30m redevelopment of the College of Arts & Social Sciences and modernisation of teaching facilities at the University of Aberdeen.  
 
The brief encompasses the refurbishment of a number of existing buildings, centred around the University‚??s historic core at King‚??s College. These include the existing central teaching facilities within the Grade B listed King‚??s College, Cromwell Tower and New King's, as well as a number of mid-20th century buildings that sit within the Old Aberdeen Conservation area.

A new central ‚??hub‚?? building shall form a focal point for the College of Arts & Social Sciences, housing collaboration, breakout, study and social spaces, enabling the University of Aberdeen to deliver a stimulating and dynamic learning environment.
 
The project will deliver an array of centralised teaching and learning facilities, including new and refurbished lecture theatres, seminar rooms and IT enabled teaching rooms, providing a modern teaching and learning environment at the heart of the University‚??s historic campus.
  
The plans also incorporate a new Civic Square and public realm improvements, to enhance the external learning environment whilst complimenting the adjacent Elphinstone Lawn and historic setting.
 
The project will be completed in several phases over a period of 5 years, and result in a major upgrade of teaching and learning facilities within the historical heart of the University Campus.
‚?®BMJ Architects has worked continually within the University sector for 50 years with a major emphasis on the provision of research and teaching facilities.
