Keele University Veterinary School & Hospital

Written by Chris Race Regional Director, Sheffield

Jefferson Sheard Architects are working with clients CVS Group, the UKs largest veterinary services provider, and Keele University - to design a new School of Veterinary teaching facility on the Keele campus.

This project brings together Jefferson Sheard Architect’s experience and skills gained through delivering Veterinary facilities for CVS throughout the UK, combined with years of producing flagship higher education buildings. The result is to create something truly special for the University and CVS group, and deliver the highest standard learning environment for the students complimented by the animal hospital.

“This is a major innovative partnership between CVS Group and Keele University which will enable the parties to work together to deliver a quality building of architectural and clinical merit of which we can all be proud, and which will serve Harper and Keele Veterinary School students and also veterinary surgeons and enable them to co-exist as well as enabling us to help to grow new vets for the future.”

The exterior copper cladding and generous glazed entrance atrium create a modern flexible space which offers an impressive gateway to the new facility.
