A building at Nottingham Trent Universities Clifton Campus has been awarded with a regional construction accolade.
Designed by Midlands-based architectural practice Maber, the Campuses’ ‘Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Centre’ (ISTeC) was awarded with the ‘Project of the Year – Building Projects’ title at the recent East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards ceremony held last month.
Launched in October 2017, the facility consists of two floors of state-of-the-art laboratories for bioscience, computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, robotics, sport science and engineering.
The awards, which recognise the very best in the East Midlands’ built environment, were based on a range of criteria including demonstrating collaborative working, completion of the project ahead of time and achieving the lowest environmental impacts, as well as employing best practice, innovation and technical achievement.
Chief Operating Officer and Registrar at Nottingham Trent University, Steve Denton, said: “This fantastic facility is already giving our students an environment where they can undertake exciting and challenging project-based learning as well as better preparing them for jobs in science and technology.
“We’re delighted our building has been recognised for not only its innovative nature, but also to reward the hard work and effort put in by all involved in getting it up and running using the latest techniques and team working.”
