Queens Building, University of Bristol
Willmott Dixon Contact
We are building a new extension to the front of the existing Faculty of Engineering, Queens Building, for University of Bristol.
The existing Queen’s Building, completed in the 1950s, no longer meets the needs of current teaching methods and offers little scope to develop the existing internal spaces to meet these needs.
This new facility will provide a collaborative atrium space, new teaching and research rooms and laboratories. The new facade to Woodlands Road will provide a new entrance and also a landscaped area previously unused.
The Engineering faculty has been fully live and functional throughout the construction.
The project comprises a new 5 storey extension linked to the existing façade to create the new flexible teaching spaces. This includes a complex temporary works solution that requires excavation below ground floor level to create a basement and new ground floor slab. The heavy duty steel frame will be erected and tied to the existing façade. Intermediate floors are 350mm thick precast all craned into place.
This construction takes place on a confined site whilst the University remains live and fully functional.
Queens Building is located off of University Walk in the centre of the University of Bristol Campus. Our site offices are near the main entrance to the existing building. Please come to the site office and then we will guide you to the construction site which is on the other side of the building at Woodlands Road.
