As one of the University’s largest and most prestigious future development sites, the new school, which sits within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, will comprise three complimentary and inter-related buildings totalling approximately 9000m2 – an Academic Building, a Veterinary Clinical Skills Centre and a Veterinary Pathology Facility.

The new building will be positioned at the corner of the new campus green at Manor Park. It will feature naturally ventilated office and teaching spaces along one side of the atrium and research spaces and lecture halls along the other. In this way the atrium will really act as the lungs for the building.
The roof of the atrium is shaped to guide rising, warmed air into the plant room where the heat can be extracted and reused.

The new academic building will provide world-class teaching and research laboratories, lecture theatres, and flexible break out spaces organised around a common shared atrium.

Professor Lisa Roberts, Dean of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, comments: “We were very impressed with the design concept for the new School of Veterinary Medicine that Devereux Architects presented at the tendering stage. We are looking forward to working with the professional team at Devereux Architects to deliver this major project for the University of Surrey.”

Darius Umrigar, Devereux Architects’ Director leading the project, commented: “We are delighted to have been selected to design this exciting and important project for the University of Surrey. Our involvement in this flagship development continues our extensive recent work in designing and delivering world-class research, teaching and training facilities across the bioscience sector both in the UK and internationally.”
