Willmott Dixon has been chosen by Oxford Brookes University to deliver two new buildings on its Headington Hill campus.

The buildings, a teaching block with faculties offices along with an engineering building,  will provide cutting-edge, sustainable spaces for students, staff, researchers, partners and the wider community.

The ADP Architecture-designed buildings will provide a new home for the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment and sustainable, flexible spaces for students, staff and researchers.

Jerry Woods, director of estates and campus services at Oxford Brookes University, said:

“We are pleased Willmott Dixon has commenced work on two inspirational buildings for our Headington Campus. The new state-of-the-art labs, workshops, and teaching and social learning spaces will be transformational for our Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment.

“Together, the new teaching and workshop buildings will help our students, staff and researchers to flourish, boost local collaboration and meet the needs of business. It will also support the move of our remaining activity on the Wheatley Campus and play a key role in the University’s long-term estate vision.”

Richard Poulter, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the south, said: “This state-of-the-art facility will provide Oxford Brookes University with innovative facilities that allow their students and staff to meet the future requirements of industry and entrepreneurism. The sustainability credentials of this building indicate Oxford Brookes’ forward-thinking approach, and we are thrilled to be part of their journey.” 

“We are looking forward to seeing how the project develops and working with all stakeholders to drive positive impact out of the process and leave a highly sustainable new space for the students.”
