This project for Birmingham City University included the development of the campus involving 8,000m2 of new build and 12,000m2 of refurbishment to create the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine faculty.

The Seacole building boasts a state-of-the-art library and learning centre, IT suite, lecture theatres, radiography imaging suite, radiotherapy suite, teaching and office areas, a bar and shop. There is also a Skills Suite which hosts a series of specialist rooms – including a number of mock hospital wards complete with simulated ‘patients’ (known as SIM Men), a mock operating theatre, plaster room, birthing room and home environment.

The Structural Engineering for this building led to a reinforced concrete frame with exposed concrete columns. The design was particularly challenging because new ceiling to floor heights combined with matching new floor levels to the existing demanded an exceptionally shallow structure with large open spans. The unique air conditioning solution that utilises the thermal mass within the structure required accessible, flat concrete soffits.
