Lancaster University, Health Innovation Campus

Lancaster, UK. 2020

The Lancaster Health Innovation Campus (HIC) is the latest project to emerge from the practice's longstanding relationship with Lancaster University. The University’s ambition is to establish itself as a major international presence in the field of Health and Medicine through the design of this new HIC. JMP's campus masterplan will bring together businesses, the NHS, students and academics from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds. Central to this campus is the Innovation Hub, representing phase one of the development.

The scheme comprises a café, quiet reading areas, private meeting rooms, open breakout zones and a business lounge for more formal conversations. Close consultation with the University’s Faculty of Health and Medicine has resulted in a scheme that offers maximum flexibility, the promotion of interdisciplinary working and collaboration, the provision of exceptional working and learning environments, and a holistic building design that is sustainable and energy efficient, targeting an 'Outstanding' BREEAM standard.
