The University of Bristol has announced the design team for its Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.

Perfect Circle, a consortium of AECOM, Pick Everards and Gleeds, has been appointed by the University to design its New Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.

The team includes globally recognised architecture firms Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, engineering consultants Buro Happold and ARUP and international landscape architecture consultancy Grant Associates.

The university's new campus will provide spaces for teaching, learning, research and innovation, as well as flexible spaces for co-located enterprises. A new student village will provide state of the art student accommodation and an open access Quantum Technology Innovation Centre aims to take quantum research from the lab into the commercial world.

It's hoped the new campus will bring life into the east of the city centre, whilst providing a welcoming space and facilities for the communities around it.

Guy Orpen, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Bristol said: "Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus offers us an opportunity to reimagine the University's role in the city, develop new research, education and partnering opportunities and secure the future of our globally recognised University. We are excited to be working with such an outstanding design team with an understanding of creating quality places that people want to spend time in, spaces that are inspiring, sustainable and welcoming. Over the coming months we will be working with the architects, businesses, our staff, students, our city and its communities to develop our plans further to transform this presently derelict landmark site into a vibrant new part of the city centre."
