Central School of Speech and Drama

This seven storey central London teaching facility was designed by Nick Evans Architects to meet the exacting requirements of the university.

Paul Owen Associates provided full civil and structural engineering design services on this  complex structure. The varied external cladding consists of a tightly spaced and subtly coloured glass façade to the west of the building and the use of dark engineering brick and zinc cladding to the other elevations requiring carefully consideration in relation to the structure.
