KEY FACTS

Old Road Campus, University of Oxford

PBA has been involved in the ongoing £117 million redevelopment of the University of Oxford’s Old Road campus for several years, including the design of two new medical research buildings, the Kennedy Institute for Rheumatology and Nuffield Department of Medicine.

Two current projects on the site include the Big Data Institute and the Amenities/Bio-escalator buildings.

The four-storey BDI is an office building for data analysis and consists of a post-tensioned concrete frame above ground, with secant piles and conventional reinforced concrete flat slab in the basement. The five-storey amenities building will consist of a mixture of laboratory, office, gym, café with a six-level car park attached via a glazed atrium.
