Taking on the new purpose of the building, our refurbishment has transformed the internal planted courtyard into an atrium Hub and breakout space, connected to a new café facility and wrapped by custom-made teaching rooms. These rooms boast a contemporary fit-out design that allows students to work in small groups, larger teams or as one collective whole.
A suite of highly serviced teaching spaces with the very latest teaching facilities have been created with our designs providing for a full range of medical teaching areas including a full ‘hospital’ training facility with simulated wards, an operating theatre, and a GP surgery.
One of the largest changes has involved reinterpreting the voids under the building, converting them into the state-of-art simulation suites. This has allowed for the reproduction of external events such as a road traffic accident, or a drug overdose at a nightclub.
These new facilities enable students to experience the full range of medical situations including rescue and recovery, treatment for long-term sickness and trauma within a full hospital environment.
The Faculty’s new home is now open, with staff and students already taking advantage of the new ways to undertake medical training.
