B&K wins £20m Nottingham Trent Art school job

Construction & Build

Bowmer & Kirkland has bagged the job to build Nottingham Trent University’s School of Art and Design with a £20.4m bid.

Work will start early next year on the nine-storey block to be located on Shakespear Street in the city centre.

The planned building designed by architect Hawkins Brown, will provide a variety of workspaces for designing and making, collaboration areas, specialist studios and labs.

The building has been designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and DEC ‘A’ rating.

Design decisions, such as the use of post-tensioned concrete slabs and ceramic cladding, have helped to reduce their carbon impact using Hawkins\Brown’s self-developed, open-source H\B:ERT software.
