On receiving this months issue of the RIBA Journal, we were thrilled to discover that we'd been allotted a full 7-page spread in precious printed medium!

As if that wasn't a nice enough surprise - last tuesday morning we had NTU featured on the front page of the RIBA Journal website!

NTU - Library Extension


Work is progressing on site for the library extension with steelwork being installed and the overall form beginning to take shape - it won't be too long before it's up and running, providing a link for students to the suite of buildings making up the heart of the campus.

Progress on site!

Square Chapel Centre for the Arts

Groundwork continues on site in Halifax with concrete and steel going in, the feature stairs balustrade has been taking shape with the concrete castings looking tactile and warm despite the wet and cold weather!

 We're really looking forward to seeing the building take shape in the coming months while details are being developed and finalised working closely with the Square Chapel Trustees.
