Canynge Hall, University of Bristol

  • Client: University of Bristol
  • Architect: NVB Architects
  • Project Value: £4.1 million

The project is located in the Whiteladies Road Conservation Area between the existing Canynge Hall building constructed in 1880, Victorian terrace houses and the Clifton Down railway station. This sensitive location required careful detailing of the building to respond to the context of the site in terms of scale and use of materials. It also required the construction to be sensitive to the existing occupants of Canynge Hall and the adjacent properties.

Dominic Anderson was the lead mechanical and electrical consultant responsible for co-ordinating the services installation with that of the professional team, particularly with regards to natural ventilation. The building, consisting of open plan offices, meeting rooms and lecture rooms required extensive thermal modelling to confirm the suitability of natural ventilation with regards to internal temperatures and acoustic requirements.

This challenging project on a very limited site is now home to University of Bristol School of Social and Community Medicine.
