A flagship for the University of Winchester

21 September 2021

Located on a prominent site on one of the main routes into Winchester, the University commissioned a flagship teaching building to act as a cultural hub with facilities to include a library, lecture rooms, debating chamber, café and gallery space. Ridge provided M&E, BREEAM, Civil Engineering and Traffic and Transportation support and, due to early engagement and ongoing commitment of the project team, the building has successfully achieved interim ‘BREEAM Excellent’ certification.

As part of the University’s commitment to health and wellbeing on campus, the scheme is currently pursuing the WELL Building standard, with a targeted score of Platinum. Ridge has been appointed to undertake this review and continues to work with the University and other stakeholders to achieve what we hope will be one of the first WELL certified University buildings in the UK.
