The 4.3 hectare campus is the product of collaboration between the University and Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, and places the University at the forefront of maritime research. This collaboration ensures that students and researchers have access to real life case studies while Lloyd’s Register engineers have access to cutting edge research.
Works included include deep basement works, installation of complex specialist equipment and facilities, CAT A fit-out works, subterranean works, site-wide infrastructure and extensive campus-wide landscaping, and construction of a multi-storey cark park.
Phase 2 (incorporating the development of Build A: Lloyds Register Building and Building B: Maritime Centre for Excellence) was the recipient of a RIBA South Award 2016, recognising excellence in design.
