OVERVIEW

Masterplan, University of Sussex

The masterplan provides a framework for the University of Sussex for developing the campus into an asset capable of accommodating significant growth and economic benefit to the area, by providing assurance in scale, and planning the estate for future flexibility.

Having worked with the University of for over 10 years, we delivered an initial masterplan in 2004, a conservation plan and several built projects, including the £20m Jubilee Building. In 2015 we delivered the second phase of the masterplan, presenting a 10–20 year plan to enable the University to achieve its strategic vision "Making the Future".    

Our work involved extensive consultation to establish what building stock was no longer fit for purpose. We also examined campus zoning, and patterns of pedestrian, cycle and vehicular movement, servicing vehicles and fire appliance access. 

The site occupies a valley, and was developed in the early 1960s to the designs of Sir Basil Spence, some of which are listed assets. We prepared site analysis diagrams to fully understand the complex and subtle relationship between buildings, spaces, routes and landscape.
