The new Logistics Institute at the University of Hull, which has achieved widespread acclaim since opening, establishing itself as a leading institution.
The Logistics Institute was designed to bring together and enhance the University’s strengths in business and logistics and communications technologies. Since its official opening in 2008, the Logistics Institute has already contributed to the economic regeneration of the Humber region.
The project comprised a £3.7m refurbishment of a grade II listed building. Named after a Yorkshire river, the Nidd Building is one of a group of four originally constructed by the local council. As well as the complete overhaul and refurbishment of the existing Nidd Building, we also constructed a three-storey link to the adjacent Esk Building. The construction features included a new planar 2 storey glass link, which houses the main reception and seminar rooms. This entrance is the main focal point for The Business School as well as the Logistics Institute. Major internal alterations included the removal of the ground floor in the North Wing.
Features of the Logistics Institute include:
Meeting and Conference facilities
Management Learning Laboratory
Business Incubator Units
Innovative and striking entrance
Technology showcase facilities
This £4.6m project has proved to be an terrific addition to the University of Hull Business School, also built by Houlton.
