Building 60

Building 60 will be the latest addition to the University of East Anglia campus.

R G Carter has been given the privilege of delivering this important new project for the University, with whom we have a well-established working relationship. We have prominently worked alongside the University and its stakeholders for over 60 years, helping to deliver the original teaching wall, student union and other notable campus landmarks. Our most recent project, Barton & Hickling House, started welcoming new cohorts of students in September 2017 and is an outstanding achievement for all parties involved.

Building 60, its placeholder name, is situated at the western end of the campus and forms an important part of the UEA 2030 Vision. It will provide general teaching space at ground level and teaching laboratories on the upper floors. This will therefore enable all University faculties to use the new building.

The teaching spaces will be linked by an atrium where social learning and creative interaction can occur. This space will also help to unify the building, providing views between floors and giving the building an identity. The building design takes architectural inspiration from other areas of campus such as the Ziggurats, designed by Denys Lasdun.
