Project Type:Higher Education
Location:Ansty Park, Coventry
Building on the success of the existing MTC facility the Elite Academy is part of the campus expansion. Further landscape works formed part of this third phase expansion, realising the Masterplan vision for the business park. The scheme also further developed the infrastructure serving several large MTC facilities which provide services to support high value manufacturing, aerospace research and educational sectors.
This BREEAM “Excellent” building provides workshop and teaching space for 200 apprentices combined with conference and exhibition facilities. The restaurant caters for the whole of the MTC campus, and brings together commercial sector drive and entrepreneurship under a single roof.
The building faces onto a large landscaped lake designed as a focal point to the business park and the hub around which MTC activity and interaction takes place. A new footbridge connects the facilities across the lake. The lake and associated landscape structure and planting scheme contributes to achieving the BREEAM accreditation through a sustainable approach to the design, materials choices and plant mixes. A palette of high quality materials and furniture provides a cohesive infrastructure to the MTC campus setting.
Full architectural, interior design, and landscape services RIBA Stages 1-6 inclusive.
