"One of the easiest and most enjoyable building projects I have been involved in. The whole project planning, execution and now being one of the first users of it, has been an absolute pleasure."
Dr. Lesley Main, Head of the Department of Performing Arts
“As we head toward the end of our first term in Ritterman, I just wanted to write and say how much we love the new dance spaces and the whole building in general. The students and staff were so thrilled when they saw the studio back in September and it is an absolute pleasure to dance in. The warm up room is equally wonderful - having spent the last four years warming up in a cupboard, literally, this space is a delight to come in to first thing in the mornings. One of my favourite things about the new building is the mix of students and subjects, right next to each other, and the ambience that is created outside as well as in. Brilliant."
Tim Blackman, Vice Chancellor, Middlesex University
"Dear bpr team - I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I appreciate the event and tour today, and above all your imagination, inspiration and sheer hard work to realise this terrific building. I'm immensely proud of it. I realise buildings of this scale and complexity are collaborations but your work has of course been very special. Today was definitely a great day to be Vice Chancellor of Middlesex University."
Barry Harte, Technical Manager
“The building has state of the art technology giving opportunities for 'real world' hands-on experience that translates directly into industry and provides a fantastic environment for students to experiment, learn and grow. I am especially excited about the computer networking and security lab which I believe is totally unique, allowing students to physically build and configure large complex networks."
Richard Middleton, Interim Deputy Vice-Chancellor - Corporate Services"Ritterman is looking terrific, now it is cleared of scaffolding. Many thanks to bpr architects and congratulations for great design and working drawings that have enabled the contractors to get it right and on time."
Transport for London
Mike Stubbs – former Director of London Overground“Over the past year we have worked with bpr architects to produce the London Overground Station Design Guide Idiom which aligns with the London Underground Idiom but also incorporates some London Overground uniqueness. It was exciting to see the way it was very positively received by those at Transport by Design and provides a great basis for the future of our stations."
