Wigoder Law Building
University of Kent
A two-storey, high-specification building providing ground floor accommodation for the Kent Law Clinic, whilst the upper floor replicates the facilities of a court, housing a mooting chamber, waiting area, robing rooms and offices.
Facilities also include seminar, study and breakout space for the university’s law students and staff.
Constructed using a reinforced concrete frame with exposed concrete beams, columns and ceilings throughout. Internally the finishes are of a high standard. Externally, curtain walling and rainscreen cladding complete the building.
Photovoltaic panels on the roof contribute towards the sustainability and energy efficiency of the building.
The project was delivered safely within a busy university campus, with neighbouring buildings also under construction.
Woodley Coles provided all pre and post contract Quantity Surveying services and undertook the role of Principal Designer.
