In order to help Bradford College meet their rapidly changing curriculum needs, Bond Bryan led this self-funded project from inception to completion, replacing 50,000m2 of badly outdated facilities with a singular 24,000m2 new building.
The David Hockney Building at Bradford College represents the flexibility needed for an FE provider to remain in touch and current with the ever-fluctuating methods of pedagogy. Bond Bryan’s design combines striking architecture and innovative learning environments with a highly flexible and cost-effective solution. The building’s form allows the mix of open plan and cellular classroom environments to be used for a wide variety of applications, whilst also being highly reconfigurable at a low cost for the College
Developed as a case study for the use of BIM Level 2, the project has, itself, been used as a training opportunity in BIM project processes.
Through collaborative research, Bond Bryan provided a state-of-the-art building supporting the changing pedagogical needs of the faculty, within a flexible and inspiring environment.
