Matlock-based Evans Vettori has completed this new teaching pavilion at Nottingham Trent University
The £7 million scheme, which is the centrepiece of the university’s new Heart of the Campus development, includes teaching spaces, training and study rooms, and social and exhibition spaces.
The 2,000m2 pavilion building features a glazed façade with a covered raised terrace, providing a ‘sense of arrival and gravitas’.
Alongside the pavilion building the practice has also completed a teaching and learning building at the university. Linked to the pavilion by a bridge, this space houses three lecture theatres, eight teaching rooms and two seminar rooms.
Nottingham Trent University vice-chancellor, Edward Peck, said: ’The Heart of the Campus development provides us with two fantastic new buildings that greatly enhance facilities for students at our Clifton Campus.
’We have been working extremely hard to make sure the quality of teaching and the range of facilities at Nottingham Trent University are second-to-none and, in the past ten years, we have invested more than £350 million in our estate and equipment.’
