Dreadnought Building, University of Greenwich
Converting a former naval hospital within a world heritage site into a student hub
Our education specialists have created cutting-edge teaching facilities for the University of Chichester, providing new space for thousands of students.
Our work included a new three storey academic building alongside new remodelled entrance area with turning space for buses. We also provided a three storey extension to the existing music building to give additional teaching and practice spaces.
Procured through the Scape Major Works framework, the project is part of large-scale investments made by the university to ensure their campuses offer the highest standard of facilities for their students.
University Vice-Chancellor Professor Clive Behagg said, “The new development will provide a world-class learning environment for the next generation of students at Chichester.
“We are committed to providing an outstanding learning experience and will continue to invest in both our Chichester and Bognor Regis campuses to ensure that teaching spaces meet the creative, physical, and technological needs of our community.”
Roger Forsdyke, managing director for Willmott Dixon in Cobham:
“Our team of education specialists understand the demands of busy universities and the impact a building can have on students learning. We're proud to have created this superb facility for Chichester, which will add to the fantastic experience of studying there.”
