Dreadnought Building

Greenwich, 2018

Located at the heart of Greenwich Maritime UNESCO World Heritage site, the University of Greenwich’s Grade II Dreadnought Building offers an opportunity to create state-of-the-art learning, teaching and social spaces, as well as and provide additional flexible accom­mod­ation for admin­is­trative uses. 

Dannatt, Johnson Architects worked on the original 1990s refur­bishment of the Dreadnought Building and are appointed again to refurbish and to make the Dreadnought the University’s Student Hub.

The scheme includes relocating the Students’ Union into the Dreadnought building, providing an innovative space for students to socialise, learn creatively and study individually or in groups, and providing flexible spaces for student activities and events. This will build upon the success of the Students’ Union in creating a community of engaged students, providing them with modern facilities comparable with other univer­sities. The relocation will remove all Students’ Union facilities from the Cooper Building on King William Walk. The student computing facilities currently in the building will also be enhanced.
