Daniel Connal Partnership is project managing a scheme to improve outside seating and lighting at the University of Essex.
The focus of the project are the 5 squares which make up the heart of the university campus and the Plaza in front of the Silberrad Student Centre.
Square 1 will have new seating, and solar powered lighting, together with 2 new learning units. The cafés and eating places around squares 2, 3 and 4 will get updated benches and tables and the Student Union Bar will get new picnic-style benches.
Square 5 will benefit from a larger central seating area and improved lighting – incorporating a projector to project messages onto the paving slabs – and there will be new seating outside the Silberrad Student Centre, overlooking the lower lake on the campus.
