This new faculty building of Health, Life and Social Science was built by RMJM Achitects . The base of the building is in brick and the upper part is clad in aluminium cladding. Johnathon Pringle of RMJM Architects explains “A Staffordshire Blue Brindle brick was chosen on the basis of its colour and strength but it was a relatively expensive option. Alternatives were considered but while they could be sourced more cheaply, they could not offer the same high standards of performance. Ketley Brick are renowned for their Staffordshire blue product, and they were able to meet the strict criteria of both cost and quality”.
