Studios, Arts University Bournemouth
The conversion of two former Student Accommodation Blocks to Academic Studios has been completed for Arts University Bournemouth following completion of Photography and Student Services Buildings.
The three-storey loadbearing masonry structures required extensive analysis to demonstrate that upgrading from domestic floor loading to a higher imposed load and from Class 2A to Class 2b disproportionate collapse could be achieved. The result was a project that required extensive structural intervention but retained the bulk of the original structure.
