Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique
The project includes the University Building, the OCP building, a hotel, a conference hall, a student residence, a sports and a medical centre, R&D laboratories related to OCP activities (mining and processing phosphates), car park and generous green areas.
The project for the University Mohammed VI Polytechnic is located in the heart of the “Green City Mohammed VI” in Benguerir. Planning and design follows LEED certification for Neighborhood Development recommendations. The campus covers an area of approximately 55 hectares. The volume of construction (300.000 sqm) limited to a height of 21 meters, generates a rational, compact and dense composition. The geometric scheme of the project is defined by narrow streets, squares and plazas. The program promotes a green environment that encourages pedestrian traffic. The courtyards, gardens and semi-covered streets, become meeting places that promote social interaction between students and teachers. The campus reflects the spirit of excellence, technological leadership and strict respect for the environment.
