Wimbledon College of Art students moved into their new studios recently as work has completed on the new building. The building provides studio space for BA Fine Art: Print & Time Based Media and BA Theatre & Screen: Set Design for Screen students.

Working with Penoyre and Prasad Architects, Webb Yates Engineers came up with a structural timber solution which used glulam floor and roof members with timber stud walls which both minimise weight and environmental impact as well as adding to the aesthetic appeal of the building.  Precast concrete floor and roof panels along with cement particle board wall panels were also used to give the building sufficient thermal mass to negate the need for expensive air conditioning systems and help towards the goal of achieving BREEAM Outstanding.
