The Sarah Swift Building
Location: Lincon University
Architect: BAM Design
The University invested £19m to create the Sarah Swift Building – the new home for the Schools of Health & Social Care and Psychology. The new building is named after Dame Sarah Swift GBE RRC, nurse and founder of the College of Nursing (now the Royal College of Nursing), born in Kirton Skeldyke in south Lincolnshire.
Specifications to follow
Health & Social Care and Psychology are two of the largest Schools in the University, and the number of Nursing students at the University has grown rapidly since 2012.
The facility houses specialist teaching and research spaces for both Schools, as well as general teaching and learning facilities for use by the wider University. The building will bring the whole School of Health & Social Care together in one location for the first time, replacing its existing facilities in the Think Tank and Bridge House. It will include advanced clinical simulation facilities for the School’s Nursing programmes, as well as tutorial, social learning and office space for the School’s students and staff.
