FCBS wins outline planning for new £300m Bristol University campus

MASTERPLAN: FCBS's designs for Bristol University's new campus
  • Comment

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studio has won approval for its outline masterplan for Bristol University’s new £300 million campus

The practice has designed two academic buildings with a total floor area of 43,000m² for the 3ha site next to Bristol Temple Meads railway station.

The Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (TQEC) forms part of plans to increase student numbers from 20,000 to 26,000 over the next 10 years.

FCBS was appointed by Perfect Circle, a consortium featuring Aecom, Pick Everard and Gleeds, with Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) designing the residential element.

The new campus will provide research and innovation space, with accommodation on site for up to 1,500 students. It aims to open in 2021.

The university revised its initial proposals for the campus following feedback from Bristol City Council and residents.

The main changes include reducing the height of the student accommodation buildings on Arena Island, which range from 12 to 21 storeys.

A detailed planning application will be submitted next year.
