Case study: CDM Compliance Advice & Principal Designer Support Bristol
Austin-Smith:Lord was commissioned to undertake the architectural design and delivery of the University of the West of England’s new build Digital Media building on the UWE, Bower Ashton campus in Bristol.
The new building will provide a modern, fit-for purpose, digitally-connected environment that will attract and retain students and retain the University’s reputation as a sector leader. It provides space for growth in high performing subject areas.
The construction of the project is being completed by Willmott Dixon Construction, under a design and build contract with a sixty-two week construction programme delivered within the operational academic campus.
