New two storey teaching building for Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the most sustainable universities in the world and have been awarded Green Flags for their Brackenhurst and Clifton Campuses. They have approximately 27,000 students (HESA 2014 / 15) and have invested £350 million since 2003 across their three Campuses to create an inspiring learning environment.

Government backing for £10.3 million science centre

NTU is to invest £10.3 million to establish further facilities devoted to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. A new Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Engagement Centre (ISTEC) will contain state-of-the-art laboratories for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. It will also support the University’s schools, colleges and community outreach activities, while providing important facilities for industry and a platform for wider collaboration.

The centre, which is being established at the University’s Clifton campus, will involve a new build and refurbishment of existing facilities and is expected to be completed during the 2016-17 academic year.

The plan is to also create a seamless transition between university learning and employment, improving students’ employability and further enhancing industry-university collaborations. Find out more about this fantastic project:

The project

NTU are the main contractor for this project, and we have worked closely with them to supply and erect the hot and cold rolled steelwork, fit precast units and stairs and even a chimney support.

We are immensely proud of this steel frame and look forward to our topping out celebration, which is due to happen next week.

We will continue to provide you with progress details and photos as this amazing site development continues.
