Clothworkers Staircase

Award winning flooring in Clothworker’s Building South

Huge congratulations to Farrell and Clark Architects and Amtico who won in the Flooring category at the Architects Journal Specification Awards on Friday 15 February.

The flooring scheme was part of the School of Design refurbishment project that was completed in April 2018. Farrell and Clarke and Amtico worked together to minimise waste and to use colour coding as a means to help navigation. One judge remarked that ‘this team has taken it way beyond what you might expect and delivered a creative and innovative solution on a budget that wasn’t huge. The result is practical and hard-wearing and successfully reflects the ethos of the place.’

The result is practical and hard-wearing and successfully reflects the ethos of the place.

£4.4m investment in the School of Design

Plans to refurbish and significantly improve the home of the School of Design will commence in May.

The £4.4m investment, to reinvigorate spaces within the Clothworkers South building, is part of the School’s Colour Imaging Project. Various spaces across all floors of the building will undergo maintenance and refurbishment. New laboratories, exhibition areas and student spaces will be created.

 

The building will house state of the art research facilities focused on 3D Weaving, Creative and Technical Digital Print, Sustainability and Colour.

To minimise the disruption to students during the busy exam period, a significant amount of work is programmed to take place during the summer break.
