David Fussey Sports and Teaching Building

The first phase of the expansion of the University of Greenwich Avery Hill Campus included a major new sports teaching building providing a sports hall and changing facilities, a 250 seat lecture theatre and a general teaching space for a further 300 students for the School of Health and Social Care.

The building is conventionally steel framed with concrete plank floors and well-insulated blockwork infill external walls, with the diverse functions within the programme expressed through the articulation of three main blocks and their external cladding materials. In particular, the significance of the main lecture theatre on the site is expressed by its unique form and zinc cladding to both roof and walls, forming a solid mass in opposition to the glazed corner staircase of the Academic Building opposite, with its curved walls leading into the main entrance.
