Start on site for Architecture School at the Mercer Building, College Lane campus of University of Hertfordshire

May 2024

Vincent + Gorbing’s latest of many projects for University of Hertfordshire commenced on site on 20 May this year. The rapidly expanding Architecture School is to be re-housed in the Mercer Building where space will be available for BSc students as well as those undertaking the highly successful specialist architectural courses. Following a detailed briefing, we have designed a series of studios and seminar rooms around a central lecture space which can also serve as a central open plan study area. The renewed space will benefit from a fresh interior design with daylight flooding into the central area via a large glazed rooflight. De-carbonisation features have been incorporated into the scheme including replacement of the roof mounted gas boilers with high efficiency air-source heat pumps. The works are due to be completed in September 2024.
