The contract is the second awarded by the university to Henry Brothers, which is also building a new £23M engineering facility for the East Midlands university.
This latest facility will focus on the development of innovative products and advanced materials to meet future healthcare needs. It is being built on the Clifton Campus, where a ground-breaking ceremony recently took place.
Ian Taylor, Managing Director of Henry Brothers Midlands, said: “We have partnered with a number of universities to create exciting and inspirational facilities for teaching, research and development.
“For the past year, we have been working on a prestigious new engineering building, which is due to be completed for the upcoming academic year. We are delighted to have been appointed on a second scheme at the Clifton Campus to once again support Nottingham Trent University with its development plans.”
The new two-storey facility will feature clean rooms, a digital theatre, laboratories and collaborative working spaces, and will have a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
Due for completion next year, the multidisciplinary research and development building will integrate the work of scientists, engineers, clinicians, entrepreneurs and industry, who will work collaboratively to develop products and materials.
