Coventry University

Turnberry has been closely involved with the growth of Coventry's city-centre campus since 2007.

The association began with the preparation of a high-level Development Plan for the University’s estate, to assist in the implementation of specific early stage projects. Turnberry has worked closely with the Estates Department to improve its management and prepare an Estates Strategy and campus masterplan, which included the commissioning of a new set of buildings that dramatically improve the University's physical presence and impart greater coherence across its urban campus. Turnberry has provided strategic advice on all aspects of the development process from conception to construction – developing initial briefs, assisting with the selection of architects through formal competitions and achieving all the necessary planning permissions.

As part of the delivery of the masterplan, Turnberry has been involved with the preparation of numerous project briefs for individual buildings, both new additions and refurbishment of existing campus structures. These include the Student Hub (2011), Engineering and Computing Building (2012), the refurbishment of the 1970s Jaguar Building (2013), and the proposed Science and Health Building (completion scheduled 2017).

Recently, Turnberry has worked with the Coventry School of Art and Design and the Faculty of Business, Environment and Society on the formation of specific project briefs for certain key new build and refurbishment projects. Currently, Turnberry is assisting with the negotiations with the City Council for a complex city-centre site purchase, which will advance the delivery of the Estates Strategy.
