ArchitecturePLB were appointed by the University of Portsmouth to develop proposals in support of the University’s strategic vision. The masterplan will be rolled out over a 15-20 year period with a planned expenditure of circa £400m.

Our proposals create a distinctive and coherent university quarter with a clear sense of arrival through a series of new gateway buildings. Our urban design and public realm strategy creates an overarching shape and context for future projects connected by safe, active and attractive routes and spaces to integrate the university with its city context.

The masterplan has economic, social and environmental sustainability at its core and considers the future management of buildings, infrastructure and external spaces. Our recommendations include optimising the performance of the existing estate through enhanced energy saving policies and a planned programme of refurbishment.
