The ICEPS project for the University of Leeds is a new £100m development which, when completed, will house a new International Centre for Engineering and Physical Sciences. Located on the north east quarter of campus the new 15,000sqm building will enable 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 current accommodation and the facilities are no longer fit for purpose and restricting future growth. This new development will remedy this and position the University as an international leading platform.
Within the core of the building the Bragg Centre will be a significant element within this project. It will house 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 new Astbury Bio-Structure Laboratory will be an additional facility as part of the renowned Astbury Centre. New cutting edge instruments will be housed here making it one of the leading centres for structural biology research in the UK. The scheme will also house central teaching space plus social interaction spaces including a new café facility.
