Oastler on course for top gong

An AHR-designed university campus was named Best Education Building at the West Yorkshire Local Authority Building Control (LABC) awards.

The Oastler Building, which received a royal opening by the Duke of York in April, will now compete for a top spot in the LABC Grand Finals to be held in London in November.

The £28m building for the University of Huddersfield, which has achieved BREEAM Excellent, houses the University’s Law School and Humanities department, providing facilities such as  four 300-seat lecture theatres, a mock law court, tutorial spaces, and language labs and offices.
