ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2020-2021

Project Detail

Percy Gee East Wing, University of Leicester

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2020-2021 Finalist

The Percy Gee East Wing is a 3,000 square metre, four story extension to the existing Student’s Union on the University of Leicester’s main campus.

The project involved the partial demolition of the existing building and a new extension, all completed whilst the remainder of the building, including a large nightclub/music venue, remained in operation.

Key features of the new extension include a new five outlet food court, Student Union reception and seating area, meeting spaces and a large multi-use hall.

Project Overview

The extension sits within the central square of the main campus of the University of Leicester and acts as a new focal point for socialising for students, staff and visitors.

Externally the building features a striking glazed façade. Internally, existing historic features of the building have been retained on the lines of crossover from the demolition works and provide an interesting context between the old and the new.

The project provides a striking new visual focal point to the central campus, enhanced landscaping to the surrounding areas, improving the overall student experience with a high-quality space and facilities.
