Sinclair Building

Oxford Brookes University

Creation of a modern teaching, research and study space for the University’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences

This £6.25 million project was delivered under the University’s construction framework, and included the remodel and refurbishment of Oxford Brookes University’s Sinclair Building.

Our works included the remodelling of internal space across three of the Sinclair Building’s five storeys, plus the roof and basement. The project, has improved the 1970’s built building’s spatial and environmental efficiency, which provides ten main laboratories plus preparation and test spaces, two computer laboratories and 34 open plan offices with associated meeting and interview rooms.

Oxford-based BGS Architects designed the building’s new modern look to complement and blend with other Headington Campus buildings. The refurbishment makes use of natural ventilation and daylight which is unusual for a laboratory design.
