Architectural Design and Project Management
Institutional Development Project
Symbion was commissioned to carry out pre-contract design and post contract supervision of a learning Centre for Infectious Diseases Institute at Makerere University in Kampala. This six-storey centre will serve the school of Medicine by providing training rooms, computer laboratories and administrative offices in one wing. The new flexible contemporary design caters to the client’s primary concerns of functionality, aesthetics, provision for lettable space and overall cost of construction. Curtain walls together with aluminium framed windows, marmoran coating and rustic tiles on the exterior, display a warm familiar feel. Use of both natural lighting and ventilation not only promote sustainability, but add character to the structure. Interior design features unique to the project are the locally crafted artistic entry door; as well as a symbolic floor panel within the Entrance lobby area.
