Russell Group University, New Academic Unit
Russell Group University, New Academic Unit

The New Academic Unit is the first project for this prestigious university, as part of their 10-year development plan.

The vision for the project is to promote collaboration between staff and students through careful design of the facilities.

At the heart of the development is an Academic Student Centre which supports active learning by providing a range of small group study experiences via tutorials, problem classes, and very popular workshops.

This space embeds a “flipped learning” philosophy which has revolutionised the first-year curriculum and encouraged much greater interaction between staff and students.

Ruth Butler provided independent RIBA Client Adviser services, including: Strategic vision and brief; round-table consultations with students and staff; precedent studies; accommodation schedule; design and layout options and board presentations.

Ruth Butler was commissioned to work with the department to assess the required space for the department, both now and into the future, and to produce a strategic brief with design and layout options together with next steps
