A Fitting Campus for the 21st Century

January 2020

Identified by Experian as one of the leading business hubs in Britain, Northampton has seen a flurry of investment in recent years. Perhaps its most bold – and significant – investment is the development of the University of Northampton’s £330m purpose-built Waterside campus, which has seen the relocation and integration of its two main sites into one state-of-the-art centre of learning.

THE PROJECT A new state of the art university campus near to Northampton town centre.

THE BRIEF To design a surface water management system including SuDS solutions to manage the high quantity of water around the site including the risk of flooding from the nearby River Nene.

THE SOLUTION A combination of channels to suit the range of pedestrianised areas and road including MonoDrain, KerbDrain, and Brickslot draining directly into swales. StormBrixx attenuation tanks were installed across the site to store the higher volumes of water as required.
