£10.5m
Design & Build

A multi-million pound development for the University of Wolverhampton which will provide high specification laboratory and workshop space for science and engineering businesses.
The £10.5m Science, Technology and Prototyping Centre is situated at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park in Glaisher Drive.

The three storey development provides 4,000 square metres of space and features high quality offices, labs and workshops, as well as a cafe and space for parking.

The reinforced concrete building's main elevation features a fully glazed atrium. Each floor offers flexible space, including future expansion offices for science-based businesses.

The building also employs low carbon technology, adopting photovoltaic panels along with exposed concrete structures to reduce energy demand in heating and cooling the building.

Nigel Babb, commercial director at the science park, said: 
 
"It has been really exciting to see the building finished. We think it will attract science and technology-based companies right to the heart of Wolverhampton where they can grow and develop new products and processes.

Clegg Construction has done a fantastic job in delivering it."
