comment 0

Yesterday morning, MArch Design Studio 23 visited Brunel Building construction site.

Brunel Building is an innovative new workplace located on the Grand Union Canal opposite Paddington Station. The scheme includes significant improvements to the public realm, and when complete will create a new section of canal towpath to link the Paddington Basin with Little Venice. (Fletcher Priest)

The architects behind the project are Fletcher Priest and the contractor is Laing O’Rourke.

This visit was part of a 3-stage programme with Laing O’Rourke under the theme of DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly), which links with DS23‘s design brief this year.

The programme, which also included a seminar with students and Laing O’Rourke on DfMA at the University of Westminster, as well as an upcoming visit to the Laing O’Rourke Explore Industrial Park Workshop, has been organised by Scott Batty.
