New Team Based Learning Suite – University of Bradford
University of Bradford
Bradford, West Yorkshire
Bowman Riley was commissioned to provide project management, design and specification, CDM coordination and cost consultancy services to transform an existing conference facility into an IT centred Team Based Learning suite.
The University introduced Team-based Learning, as a structured, student-centred learning and teaching strategy designed to promote active learning through a process of preparation, testing and application of knowledge. The University advocates that by regularly participating in team-based learning, students develop transferable skills that will develop their capabilities for the workplace, enhancing their employability.
Bowman Riley worked closely with the University to integrate and coordinate audio-visual technology, IT and electrical installations. This was critical to ensure the furniture layouts and equipment achieved full capacity and performance.
The existing conference facility was completely stripped out and a new internal ramp, raised access floor and acoustic doors were installed. High quality ceilings, carpets, doors and wall finishes were installed to create a first class learning environment.
The result is a new state of the art computer based learning facility for University students designed to promote active, engaging and sustainable learning.
