Morgan Sindall confirmed for £57m Birmingham Uni lab

Construction & Build

Birmingham University has signed a £57m contract with Morgan Sindall to build the first phase of its landmark new molecular sciences building.

Morgan Sindall is one of its pool of preferred firms selected to deliver a 10-year, £500m  development programme.

Designed by Associated Architects, the 12,790 sq m hub building will provide a focal point for the University’s core research capabilities in chemical, environmental and bio-molecular sciences, and provide improved facilities for academics and post-graduate students.

Located at the old Munrow Sports Centre site at its Edgbaston Campus, it will form the first part of a flagship complex to be delivered in several phases.

The main lab facades will be clad with large floor to ceiling metal panels, with the front entrance elevation softened with glazing and vertical shading fins which project out from the façade at 90degrees.
