The Post-Tensioned, Prestressed Ketton Stone Perimeter Frame of The Queen's Building, Emmanuel College, Cambridge

The Queen’s Building at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, was completed in April 1995. It provides the college with a 170-seat auditorium, reading rooms, common rooms, and music practice rooms. The building features a stone perimeter frame, constructed from Ketton stone, an oolitic limestone extracted from the Ketton Quarry in Lincolnshire. M.G.T. Dickson and G.R. Werran
