We are committed to providing the best academic buildings for the benefit of staff and students. This facility, due to complete in 2023, will strengthen our core research capabilities in the chemical, environmental and bio-molecular sciences, fostering an environment in which world class research can be carried out. It will be a showcase for research and innovation and a place to connect that research to education, promoting collaborative work.

This is the first phase of a multi-phased master plan that will provide further academic accommodation in the coming years and will facilitate greater collaborative working between University academics and Schools, as well as with industry and partner institutions.
