Berman Guedes Stretton has landed planning approval for this £17 million scheme at Pembroke College, Oxford
The design incorporates a new glass bridge connect Pembroke College’s main site to five new buildings and a quad. The buildings will provide 96 student bedrooms, seminar rooms, café and other facilities. The scheme also includes ground source heating and a solar hot water system designed to generate 29 per cent of its energy use on site.
Archaeological investigation will start next year, with the project expected to be complete in 2012.
The firm was awarded the project following a national competition, which shortlisted six firms. These were Allies & Morrison, Dixon Jones, MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, Nicholas Hare and ADP.
