The University of Warwick completed construction in March of 2021 on the £33 million Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building in Coventry in the United Kingdom. Designed by Hawkins\Brown and Fairhursts Design Group, the 75,000-sf facility provides flexible open labs for up to 300 researchers in neuroscience, cell biology, disease models, and microbiology and infection. The five-story building houses a 400-seat lecture hall and a variety of social interaction spaces, with offices and collaboration zones located on the perimeter of the facility to activate the façade. General contractor Willmott Dixon leveraged offsite modular construction strategies in the delivery of the structure, which integrates both Glulam and cross-laminated timber (CLT) materials. The project team included engineering consultant Stantec, mechanical and electrical engineer Hoare Lea, civil and structural engineer Peter Brett Associates, cost consultant Mace, and project manager Turner & Townsend. The facility is expected to attain BREEAM Excellent sustainable design certification.
