Milestone reached in construction of the Life Sciences Building

Life Sciences Bulding June 2009

We have reached a significant milestone in the new Life Sciences Building project - we are now half way through the construction programme, with the new facility expected to be ready for the final fit-out by this time next year, and occupants moving in over the summer in readiness for the start of the 2010 academic year.

The images below (all views from the south of the site) show how the project has developed over the past 12 months and how it will look in 12 months time:
