    The project houses a new International Centre for Engineering and Physical Sciences. Located on the north east quarter of campus the 15,000sqm building enables the integration of the university disciplines of engineering, physics, chemistry and computing along with the provision of critical central teaching and social interaction spaces.

    Much of the former accommodation and the facilities were no longer fit for purpose and restricting future growth. The development remedies this and positions the university as an international leading platform.

    Within the core of the building the Bragg Centre is a significant element within this project. It houses purpose built laboratory space offering additional cleaning rooms facilities, high resolution electron microscopy, surface probe microscopy and X-ray diffraction and Raman and terahertz spectroscopy.

    The Astbury Bio-Structure Laboratory is an additional facility as part of the renowned Astbury Centre. New cutting edge instruments are housed here, making it one of the leading centres for structural biology research in the UK.
