Project Story

We were appointed to deliver a new suite within the state-of-the-art Innovation Studio at Arts University Bournemouth (AUB). This included the refurbishment of an existing administrative space to create a 6,500 sq ft Innovation Suite including a new reception area to the art incubation facility studio. The project was awarded through the Pagabo Refit and Refurbishment procurement framework.

The completed project has delivered collaborative work and social space for local businesses, start-ups, CPD delivery, and post-graduate students working in the innovative creative, cultural, engineering, and manufacturing sectors. This also includes workshop rooms equipped with AV, body scanner, 3D printing, and textiles facilities as well as specialist digital and clean digital fabrication equipment.

The full scope of works included the installation of new mechanical and electrical services and the refurbishment of existing seating areas as well as, new floor finishes, decoration, new furniture, and a timber feature wall.

The new suite has been designed by our own architect team, with Selway Joyce as project manager, quantity surveyor, and employer’s agent.
