Exeter College, Oxford

We are the Structural, civil and transport Engineer on Alison Brooks Architects’ design team that won an open competition held in 2011 for the re-development of the Ruskin College campus in Oxford, for Exeter College.

This £25m development has been under construction since 2014, and will shortly be completed. The scheme includes an auditorium, cultural and dining facilities, 90 student bedrooms and teaching facilities on the site of the old Ruskin college campus. It is a bold re-working of the site with the original listed 1912 Ruskin Building being reconstructed within its historic front façades. The design includes exposed visual concrete elements, glulam timber and a striking curved roof form.
