This new facility will enable the university to expand its Faculty of Engineering and will host several world-leading research groups, accommodating some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies related to automation, precision manufacturing, additive manufacturing and lightweight composite materials.
The 97,000 sq ft building sits next to Lenton Lodge – the former gatehouse to Wollaton Park – and provides a new southern entrance to the university’s Jubilee Campus, which occupies much of the former Raleigh site in Triumph Road.
Chris Jagger, chief estates and facilities officer at the university, said:
“This pioneering project delivers a fantastic addition to the university’s portfolio of unique and ground-breaking buildings and it further enhances the continued growth of our Jubilee Campus.
“The project has also included a replacement new building for the 62nd Wollaton Park Scout Group, which will also provide facilities for the local community.”
