These buildings for three science departments at the BIUST totalling abut 8950m2 were constructed with a steel frame structure to speed up the process. The programme was quite tight and governed by university opening for the new academic year.
The floors are a steel decking system infilled with concrete. Walls are brickwork. The steel framework meant the stilts of the buildings could hover above the rock outcrops on the site.
