Biodiscovery Institute

Client: University of Nottingham
Location: Nottingham
Value: £18.0m

Approach

An expansion to the University of Nottingham’s Biomolecular Sciences department at their University Park Campus, providing a pioneering research centre of excellence in the detection and treatment of serious diseases. The new facility, houses 350 academics, researchers and PhD students, bringing together experts in diseases from six separate university sites including cancer, cardiovascular, liver, bone and respiratory conditions to encourage collaboration and drive new breakthroughs in treatment and diagnosis. Engagement with the University was paramount to meeting all stakeholder and end-user requirements, ensuring delivery of a fit for purpose world class research facility.

Approach

Construction

Constructed within a confined environment, adjacent occupied buildings, on a live Campus and close to the tram line and A52 Ring Road. To ensure the safety and security of staff, students and general public, secure site fencing was installed and a full-time Logistics Manager co-ordinated all vehicle movements, deliveries and pedestrian access.
To overcome the logistical challenges of the tight site, we incorporated two high rise tower cranes to install materials into place and lift the large items of specialist plant. The cranes were utilised by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue over two weekends for specialist high rise fire rescue training.

Construction

Finished Build

Built across five floors, the new facility comprises laboratory space and a full height glazed atrium with two impressive bridge links connecting to the Boots Science Building and CBS Building. Constructed to BREEAM Excellent, the building features specialist high insulated curtain walling, green roofs, photovoltaic panels and brise-soleil sunscreens. The project was highly commended for ‘Best Educational Building’ at the LABC East Midlands Awards.“The new world-class facilities will allow us to meet the demand for increased biomolecular research and strengthen the University’s strong reputation.”  Senior Capital Projects Manager, University of Nottingham
