The school, the first new engineering department to be established at Imperial in two decades, will be housed in the former Post Office building on Exhibition Road.
The project includes a full refurbishment of their South Kensington campus to deliver teaching and research facilities for the Dyson School over 5 floors, to include; workshops, design studios, presentation space, store, create zone, office space, formal meeting space, café, research studios, design laboratories, play pen space, machine zone, “trouble” zone and exhibition spaces.
Delivering to BIM Level 1, this scheme will embody the over arching principles for the Dyson School’s space: open plan and flexible wherever possible, whilst preserving key original features – e.g Exhibition presentation room/central vaulted ceiling space/daylight access for studio activity.
Works will also include opening the basement into the existing lightwells by forming new structural openings; a link bridge between Dyson and Observatory buildings, spanning over the Science Museum’s courtyard plus new internal stair and lift core structures
