New five storey facility in Nottingham providing high quality laboratory and office space as well as areas for conferences and meetings.

The Brief

The vision for the BioCity Discovery Building was to expand the existing life sciences complex and create more than 700 new roles in Nottingham over the next 30 years. Moreover, the building is expected to act as a catalyst for further investment, attracting more life science employers to the city.

Our response

The mixed-use nature of the building, which ranges from laboratories and office space to café facilities and chemical and solvent storage rooms, means this project required careful attention to detail, strong leadership and the dedication of our NEC Supervisor team to deliver a defect free handover, meeting all agreed project programme and budgetary constraints.

As part of the project team we worked collaboratively and developed a strong working relationship. By attending monthly meetings and maintaining regular dialogue we supported  risk mitigation and created an exceptional building.

Key Facts

  • The project provided a boost to the local economy by creating hundreds of jobs.
