A new £20m centre for executive education by Dixon Jones has been constructed as an extension to the existing Saïd Business School. This prestigious new building has been designed to a very high standard and occupies a prominent location adjacent to Oxford mainline railway station
The building is laid out over three storeys, plus a single storey basement, and contains three Harvard style lecture theatres at ground floor level, with seminar rooms, dining facilities and offices above. The structure is of reinforced concrete flat slab construction, founded on reinforced concrete piles. A geothermal heating/cooling system has been integrated into these piles as part of the sustainability strategy of the building.
