Kingston University Town House: A case study

Recorded:Thursday 10 September 2020
Presented by:Jenny Burridge, Head of Structural Engineering, The Concrete Centre
CPD:1 hours

The Town House at Kingston University is new mixed use teaching building containing the library, dance studios, a theatre and adaptable learning spaces. The building was opened in early 2020 and is designed to be used by both town and gown. The concrete frame and exposed colonnade are precast concrete to minimise finishes and to take advantage of the structure’s thermal mass.

This seminar recording features presentations by the architect, Grafton Architects, the structural engineer, AKTII and the frame contractor, PCE and talks about the challenges and highlights from the design and construction of the building.

The winners of our student competition Structural Concrete 2020 were also announced during this online seminar. 

Duration: 1 hour, 25 minutes
