Ambitious £55m building and landscaping project at Kingston University receives planning permission
The application for a very ambitious building and landscaping project at Kingston University has been approved by councillors on the Royal Borough of Kingston’s development control committee, a recent news report revealed.
University officials claim that the scheme at Penrhyn Road campus will ‘transform’ the learning environment, as it will include a modern learning resources centre over several floors, a 300-seat multi-media auditorium, rehearsal and performance space for the University’s dance courses, as well as three new public landscaped areas.
Construction work is due to start in summer 2016, with the new building and landscaping scheduled to be complete in late 2018.
Kingston University’s Director of Estates Sean Woulfe said: "Local people and heritage groups have responded very warmly to this project. The design reflects the University’s intention to engage with the public and open up learning opportunities for everyone.
"The colonnade draws people in, and the lively landscaped terraces showcase the University’s learning activities to everyone passing by, on this key gateway to the town centre."
Considering the specific nature and the future use of the building, the implementation of a solid and reliable Access Control system on the premises is certainly a must.
