Bournemouth University - Media Centre
RMF were delighted to work with another major UK contractor on the construction of the Poole Gateway Building at Bournemouth University.
RMF supplied and installed 2,400 m2 of raised flooring throughout the project, the site logistics were relatively simple given the building remained unoccupied during the installation.
The new Poole Gateway Building provides a range of high-quality technical facilities to support undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as research. It is used predominantly by students from the Faculty of Science & Technology and the Faculty of Media & Communication.
The high-quality technical facilities include facilities for TV (live and post production), audio studios, sound editing labs, media production spaces, green screen with motion capture suite, PC and Mac laboratories and cross-faculty collaboration spaces.
The Critical Listening lab provides studio-quality surround-sound listening and activity space for seminars and workshop sessions. The building accommodates new animation and games PC and Apple Mac laboratories, equipped with industry-standard software and the latest post-production editing eco-system, allowing for online collaboration between students working on group projects.
Designed to form a new visual gateway to the campus and its parkland, it forms part of a wider £100m programme to expand facilities at the university. The project also assists in the regeneration of the eastern end of the campus and provides additional floor space at Talbot Campus to generate growth in student numbers.
Bournemouth University has an outstanding reputation as being one of the leading academic institutions in the field of computer animation, TV and media production, science and technology and the new building provides the high quality, world class technical facilities needed.
The building achieved sustainability rating BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and the University is committed to achieving high levels of carbon reduction on all its new projects.
RMF were delighted to have worked on such an iconic project and as you can see the finished result is an extremely impressive facility.
