RIBA Bristol & Bath Late Summer Social: QEH Bristol

Food – Architecture – Drinks – Talk – Tour

FREE for RIBA members

You are invited to the RIBA Bristol & Bath Late Summer Social at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) at Clifton, Bristol for a social evening including talk and tours of the listed buildings and new Science and Art Building by Quattro Design Architects. With complementary drinks and light bites courtesy of our sponsors Ibstock.

QEH is an independent school for boys in Clifton, Bristol, England founded in 1586. The Queen is the School's patron, although QEH is named after its original patron Queen Elizabeth I. Known traditionally as "The City School", QEH was founded by merchant John Carr in 1586, gaining its first Royal Charter in 1590.

Quattro Design Architects was selected by QEH to design the new Science and Art Building on a steeply sloping site adjacent to listed school buildings and scheduled ancient monuments and overlooking a listed Victorian terrace. The project was completed in August 2016 receiving high acclaim from both the school and contractor for overcoming initial design challenges and for its intelligent use of natural materials and building form, which complement and enhance its historically sensitive setting. Quattro implemented their knowledge of BIM modelling throughout this project.

We will hear from Chair of Governors David Smart; Headmaster, Stephen Holliday; Project manager, Clive Woodford; Bursar, Rod Cook; and Joyce Clifford, Senior Associate at Quattro Design Architects.

This event is FREE to RIBA members and RIBA Student Members.For queries and further information, please contact RIBA South West, T 0117 972 3777.
