New accommodation build underway for Henley Conferences
Henley Business School has responded to the changing expectations of its business delegates in order to maintain its position in the global market as a Business School and Conference Venue. Sixty new en suite bedrooms will be built at Greenlands in two separate buildings to the equivalent standard of a four-star hotel. Kennet House and Cherwell House will be taken down as part of the works, with a new two storey block located in Thames Court and a three storey block on the site of the swimming pool.
The University’s proposed investment in this project is circa. £10m. Building worked in May 2016 and is expected to be completed within 12 months.
Care for the environment
The buildings have been designed to be sustainable, energy efficient and cost effective, using high quality low energy, responsibly sourced Green Guide specified materials to meet the BREEAM standards of the world’s leading sustainability organisation, BRE Global Limited.
In harmony with the setting
Architects Design Partnership was the architect chosen to design the new accommodation. A highly respected firm, the practice has completed several other projects on the Greenlands campus over the past 25 years.
