The strategic thinking evolved into a £6m project to address the University’s tired and dated estate. Work included refreshing the 1970’s original teaching accommodation; reviewing the principal entrance location to both the site and the main building, providing a new location for central student support services and a new social hub, and expanding of the University’s performance arts facilities.
The first phase of work is complete and features a remodelled Student Services & Reception area, and a new Student Union.
Running alongside the masterplanning and architectural design, the Graphics team was commissioned to develop a new Design Code which included a Wayfinding & Signage Strategy.
The Design Code, led by Graphic Design Associate Phil Sanders, gives the Marjons team a blueprint for the future and enables them to roll out new signage, wayfinding, furniture and fittings, materials and interior specification – while improving and maintaining consistency of brand and appearance across the site.
