Middlesbrough Unity City Academy


Marks Heeley carried out a full structural design and coordination for the new Unity City Academy in Middlesbrough. The building replaces two schools Keldholme and Langbaugh and will provide education facilities for up to 1400 pupils.

The basic building has an elliptical plan, 90m wide and 45m deep, with a monopitch roof rising from 11m high at the façade to 25m high at the rear.

The focus of the structure internally is towards the lower front elevation where significant open space has been created and which envelops the feature lecture pod and access ramp.
