The 7,500 sq m, six-storey building is being developed in a prime campus location opposite the Shorehead roundabout between Queensgate and Wakefield Road in the town.

The £27.5 million building will provide a new home for the university’s Law School and the School of Music, Humanities and Media. It will also link into the university’s Student Central Building which was completed in January 2014, at a cost of £22.5 million. The building has been designed to complement existing buildings within the university including both Student Central and the adjacent Creative Arts Building.

BIM.Technologies worked closely with the design and contractor team to ensure a well-coordinated design, including input from façade and steelwork sub-contractors. Sessions were held with the teams to integrate all the sub-contractor models within the overall design.

Morgan Sindall also commissioned BIM.Technologies to produce an intelligent Asset Information Model, with O&M manuals and product literature attached to 3D elements within the federated model.
