Anglia Ruskin University

Anglia Ruskin University

Located at Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge Campus, the Science Centre is a major new £25m, 7,906 sq m facility; which brings together teaching space for all science disciplines; staff offices and a range of specialist teaching space. 

The centre includes a 300-seat lecture theatre adapted for science subjects, and a 200-seat laboratory. 

The new building has replaced the Bryant and Mellish Clark buildings and has been designed to complement the architecture in the surrounding architectural conservation area. The red brick exterior mirrors the historic university campus buildings. The roof has also been designed to be reminiscent of traditional sheet metal roof cladding.

DESIGN & CONSIDERING THE ENVIRONMENT 

Morgan Sindall carefully designed the building to compliment its surroundings, and to consider the effect the building has on the environment. The project was designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, the building’s roof features photovoltaic panels that provide renewable energy.  The centre produces 30 per cent less carbon than a conventional building, through generating its own electricity and uses gas more efficiently. 

“This new building will provide the university with a centre that offers first-class laboratory and teaching space all under one roof, helping to aid knowledge sharing and collaboration between departments and boosting the department’s research capabilities. We’re very pleased to have been appointed to this project. Delivering world-class science facilities is an area in which our team excels and we look forward to delivering a great centre for the university.”
