Project description

Guy Graham and his team were appointed as Project Managers to deliver the 1/2 million square foot science area Masterplan consisting of teaching and research facilities for the University of Oxford. This project includes the new department of Public Health.

Key features of the project include:

  • Retention of as many existing trees on the Park Hospital site as possible
  • Provision for retention of the existing Park Hospital building
  • Placement of the plots facing Old Road at maximum distance from the road
  • Creation of a new central, pedestrian, landscaped 'heart' to the campus
  • Smaller blocks on the Park Hospital site, to maximise views from the surrounding roads into the site
  • Use of the sloping site to facilitate under croft parking under several of the plots
  • Primary access to the Park Hospital site from the ORC feed road.
