About the building

The first phase of the New Biochemistry Building was completed in 2008.  This second phase, completes the New Biochemistry building, providing additional laboratory based interdisciplinary research accommodation, over six storeys, for approximately 550 personnel. 

Particular emphasis will be focussed on the study of cellular processes and dynamics, as well as establishing the Dorothy Hodgkin Centre and the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute.  

A particular consideration is the need to provide generic facilities requiring minimal future investment to support subsequent changes in use. The two-year-long construction phase of the project is currently underway.

Practical completion Scheduled for December 2020
