New £30million science teaching and research centre completed in Lincoln
The building was delivered by Pick Everard – the independent property, construction and infrastructure consultancy – Maber Architects, BAM Construction and Yonder, and has marked a significant milestone in the university’s STEM investment.
“This project was completed in two phases and has created a new home for the university’s schools of computer science, engineering and maths and physics – transforming the site and creating a modern, state-of-the-art centre for generations of students to benefit from,” said Shirley Ashford, associate at Pick Everard.
The second phase features new engineering, testing and research facilities including EMC (Electromagnetic Capability) rooms and semi anechoic chambers as well as laser labs, virtual reality spaces for computer sciences, robotic teaching spaces, and a 500 seat lecture theatre.
“We delivered quantity surveying services to complete the 8,000m² building – which sits as a major extension to the existing Engineering Hub at the Brayford Pool campus in Lincoln city centre. The Engineering Hub also required remodelling to allow for this addition, whilst remaining fully operational which was successfully managed,” continued Shirley.
Pick Everard’s services were procured under the SCAPE Project Management and Quantity Surveying framework, which has since been superseded by the SCAPE Built Environment Consultancy framework.
