Steel-framed Dyson innovation centre opens to pupils

Posted on by in News

Located in Holt, Norfolk, Gresham’s School has opened its new Dyson Building, a centre for science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.

Funded by the James Dyson Foundation (James Dyson is a former Gresham’s pupil) the £19M centre will help educate and train future scientists and engineers.

The building is said to include classes that open to an interactive and welcoming courtyard, which is not solely a circulation space. The central areas of the school feature art hubs and open-plan communal break-out spaces. The internal configuration of the rooms has the workshops of the art department separate to the science department for sound-proofing reasons and external access matters.

Working on behalf of Kier, A.C Bacon Engineering fabricated, supplied and erected 276t of steelwork for the project.
