QUB School of Biological Sciences Progressing Well

The new School of Biological Sciences building at QUB is making excellent progress with Michael Nugent Ltd now well underway on site.

The building’s lower levels are starting to come together with sub-level plant room services such as air handling units currently being added and installed, as can be seen from the images below. In addition, prefabrication of the plant room is progressing as scheduled with first fix pipework already installed on site.

The new Biological Sciences building will be at the forefront of biomedical science technology in Northern Ireland. Due to open in 2018, the building will provide the facilities to help grow the University’s life sciences sector, especially in areas such as agriculture/food science, food safety, disease/infection biology, diagnostics, waste management, ecosystems and the environment. The new School, which is being built at Chlorine Gardens in Belfast, will offer state-of-the art teaching and research facilities for its 750 students and 170 staff, who will tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues.
