Teaching establishments, in particular universities, have faced significant challenges during the pandemic. Making their estates more flexible by providing agile space and focusing on student wellbeing has been, and continues to be, a key driver. Our work with the University of Surrey over many years has resulted in transformational spaces to improve Student wellbeing.
Creating the ‘MySurrey Hive’ and ‘MySurrey Nest’ involved the conversion of former administrative spaces into innovative social, relaxing and study spaces for students. The projects recently received a Highly Commended Aude 2021 Award.
We have also helped the University with the conversion and refurbishment of a number of additional key administrative spaces helping them move to agile working practices. This also received a Highly Commended Aude 2021 Award.
