Project Detail

New Science Centre, Uppingham School

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2014 Finalist

The new Science Centre is the final piece of an ambitious masterplan for Uppingham School.

The Centre provides 15 new state of the art laboratories, a new buttery, library, classrooms and a large lecture theatre, all enhanced by a hard and soft landscaped quad and roof garden.

It connects the school’s Western Quad to neighbouring facilities for sport, art and drama and is sympathetically constructed with local stone and specialist brickwork.
 

Project Overview

The vision for the new Science Centre was that it would form the gateway to the school’s Western Quad.

The building also fronts a public street and blends in perfectly with its existing surroundings. The Centre aims to particularly encourage an enthusiasm for science amongst female pupils.

Primarily a steel framed building with precast concrete plank floors, the Centre features English cross bond brickwork panels within a three storey brick frame.

The main Stockerston Road frontage and colonnade to the Quadrangle is formed in cast stone and frames infill panels of the local Clipsham stone, which ties into the school’s Sports Centre.

There is already an increased science uptake by girls and the lecture theatre and ground floor are attracting external bookings.
