The University of Cambridge has appointed a design team led by Stanton Williams to develop a Masterplan for the expansion of Cambridge Judge Business School
The University of Cambridge has appointed a design team led by Stanton Williams to develop a Masterplan for the expansion of Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) on the Old Addenbrooke’s Hospital site in the centre of Cambridge and to design a first phase of the proposed works, following a competition with a strong field of architects. Other team members include Arup, AKT II, Gardiner & Theobald, Hannah Reed and Stuart A. Johnson Consulting.
Cambridge Judge Business School was founded 23 years ago and its reputation as a leading business school is now well established. The masterplan will include new facilities for CJBS, which will enhance its status as a world-class research-led business school. The scheme will include additional teaching, office and social spaces, with phase I focusing on the provision of new spaces for Executive Education. The project will allow all of the CJBS facilities to be located on the old Addenbrooke’s site, enhancing interaction and communication between staff, students and the wider academic and business communities.
With an overall budget for the masterplan of £30m, the £15m first phase has been made possible with generous funding from the University of Cambridge and The Monument Trust.
Professor Christoph Loch, Director, Cambridge Judge Business School commented: “The new site will be an important step in the development of Cambridge Judge Business School. It will position the School at the heart of Cambridge, fostering innovative high-impact research and transformative engagement with students and clients.”
Gavin Henderson, director at Stanton Williams, said: “The Old Addenbrooke’s Hospital Building is a prominent and historically important building in the centre of Cambridge. This central location is an important part of the identity and character of Cambridge Judge Business School in terms of its profile and staff experience. The masterplan will maximise the potential of the site, while responding to the constraints of the sensitive context.”
