The new build proposal is to build a new four floor "state of the art" building to the north east elevation of the existing Lennard Jones building in order to provide teaching laboratories, IT provision and student social learning space. The entrance will wrap around the existing Lennard Jones building at its north-east corner.

A four storey atrium provides natural light into key areas as well as providing an air plenum to the lab spaces. The atrium also serves as a visual connection to the Lennard Jones building providing view of the existing laboratories. Long span structural planks provide column free teaching areas thus enabling flexible teaching.

Acivico Clerk of Works team will work closely with GF Tomlinson the appointed contractor. This £12.6m project has an anticipated completion date of April 2020.
