Case Study: West Downs Campus, University of Winchester

Sectors: Universities and Colleges, Commercial Carpets
Location: University of Winchester
Products: Broadrib

The pioneering West Downs Campus at the University of Winchester chose Heckmondwike's Broadrib carpet tiles, specified to help them meet sustainability goals, as well as meeting noise reduction targets in order to promote student wellbeing.

• The West Downs Centre, part of the University of Winchester is home to the university’s digital technology and digital-related degree programmes.

• Opened in September 2020, the £30million project provides a new landmark building, delivering an impressive gateway to the university’s learning spaces.

• The iconic site features an art gallery; a 250-seat auditorium; a café and food hall; contemplation space; courtyard garden, teaching spaces and library.

• The building was designed by the award-winning architects and design consultants Design Engine and constructed by the main contractor, Osborne.

• The West Downs Centre is the first higher education building in the UK to achieve the WELL standard, a new international building standard for measuring how a building impacts its users’ health and wellbeing. It also has an excellent BREEAM rating due to its host of sustainable features such as rainwater recycling, solar photovoltaic panels, a combined heat and power system and smart building management.

• Working together with key stakeholders, Heckmondwike supplied 4,500 square metres of its Broadrib carpet tiles. Similar to the company’s leading product, Supacord, Broadrib delivers heavy-contract performance complete with a wide colour range for a variety of installations.

• For the West Downs Centre project, Broadrib was the ideal solution as the BREEAM A+ rating made it suit the sustainability requirements. The 20dB impact noise reduction of Broadrib also suited the site’s vision of delivering a building that had a focus on health and wellbeing.

• Heckmondwike’s Broadrib carpet tiles were installed on-site by local flooring contractor Smith Brothers Marine.
