New CEB building gets go ahead

New building

The University Planning and Resources Committee has approved the Full Case for the new Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Building in West Cambridge. The University has now committed the funding for this project. The building is designed by BDP Architects and will provide state of the art facilities for the whole Department under one roof. The site lies to the south of Charles Babbage avenue between the Institute for Manufacturing and the Department of Materials Science, with views over the new sports centre and the countryside beyond. The building includes facilities for Biological, Physical and Chemical Research. Dedicated spaces are provided for the Magnetic Resonance Research centre and the Laser Analytics Group. All the teaching at both undergraduate and Masters level will be housed in the building, as well as the social spaces.

We aim to start construction in Summer 2013 and the building should be operational for the start of the new academic year in October 2015.
