Nottingham Trent University Constructs Engineering and Medical Technologies Buildings

Nottingham Trent University began construction in June of 2018 on two new STEM buildings in Nottingham in the United Kingdom. Located on the Clifton campus, the £22 million Medical Technologies Innovation Facility will provide sophisticated research and development labs, write-up areas, instructional spaces, offices, and a conference room. Designed by GSSArchitecture, the two-story interdisciplinary building will accommodate industry partnerships to accelerate the commercialization of new health technologies. Also, an existing two-story structure will be renovated to create a £23 million facility for the Department of Engineering. Designed to foster collaborative innovation, the 23,766-sf sustainably designed facility will house flexible learning spaces, research labs, design rooms, instrumentation suites, and the Institute of Industrial Digitalisation, Robotics, and Automation (IIDRA). The project team includes architect Maber, general contractor Henry Brothers, civil and structural engineer Curtins, and project manager Edge. Both buildings are slated for occupancy in fall of 2019.
