New ‘IQ Building’ to boost student learning at Liverpool Hope University

John Turner Construction has commenced building a new teaching and learning facility at the Liverpool Hope University Hope Park Campus.

The IQ or InQuiry Building will provide new student focused informal learning spaces, lecture theatres and a ‘learning simulation laboratory’. New adaptable teaching facilities will also be provided, with a layout to accommodate smaller tutorial groups in a ‘library without books’ setting.

A double height entrance will lead to a triple height social core that will offer informal meeting spaces, teaching rooms, Student Union offices and new access to the existing lecture theatre complex. The building has been designed with renewable energy, sustainable materials and low carbon usage in mind.
