New Library, St Anne's College
Client: St Anne's College
The building was designed for longevity with the external facade materials selection being a stone-faced precast structure which is in keeping with traditional university buildings.
The basement was formed with secant/load-bearing piles and a concrete liner wall with ground source heat technology installed within the building footprint.
The three-storey reinforced concrete frame received a steel roof structure, high-quality concrete stone-faced facade panels and stone banding at each floor level.
Full height windows were carefully inserted at each floor level. The external finishes include a grass quad with a new York stone driveway.
