University of Bath

Grant Associates had a major role in the masterplanning of the University of Bath’s Claverton Down campus and the new English Institute of Sport with its associated infrastructure.

The aim was to maintain the central parkland setting and local character of the university complex and to ‘bring in’ the Cotswold downland landscape around the edges of the campus.
