An award winning new research facility in the heart of Nottingham.

The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson building was created to act as a catalyst for science growth in the midlands.

Willmott Dixon was appointed by Nottingham City Council via SCAPE Construction and the team have successfully delivered this striking Grade A 22,700 sq. ft collaborative office space in Nottingham’s Science Park.

This eye catching facility will offer a home to growing firms that seek to expand their research and development capabilities, in close proximity to like-minded businesses.

The project includes a café, an 80-space car park and a conference space, allowing companies to host conferences and events whilst offering a central hub for networking across the site.

The construction of the new building was part funded by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and in 2021, it won the 'Sustainable Development of the Year' award at the East Midlands Property Awards.

Accelerated delivery
A local focus

This project was accelerated via Scape Construction, one of the most widely adopted construction frameworks in the UK.

This approach enabled Early Contractor Involvement and a collaborative approach from the outset to ensure that that the vision for this project could be turned into a reality.

The project took just 52 weeks to build.

The new facility now offers an innovative hub that will stimulate commercial activity and local growth within Nottingham.

To deliver the project, Willmott Dixon worked together with Perfect Circle, a property, construction and infrastructure company, jointly owned by Pick Everard, Gleeds and AECOM. The team also included CPMG Architects, Curtins Consulting and DEP Health and Safety Ltd.

During construction, Willmott Dixon partnered with Think Big Academy to deliver a careers event, which attracted more than 100 young people and created over 20 work experience enquiries. Six local jobs were created during the project, as well as attracting seven apprentices and an array of work experience opportunities for students from Nottingham College.

As a Science City, we know scientific research and new innovations like fintech can create jobs, stimulate growth and keep talented graduates in the city and we are committed to this with our £2bn Southside regeneration programme.
