Coventry University has awarded the £37 million contract to build its flagship new Science and Health Building to BAM Construction.
BAM Construction are due to start work on the building, which will bring together the Faculty of Health and Life Science’s teaching and research facilities into a ‘superlab’, in February.
The five-storey, 120,000 sq ft building on Much Park Street in Coventry’s city centre is due for completion in 2017.
The modern multi-disciplinary building will house world-class teaching and simulation facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories.
A mock operating theatre, fully-equipped ambulance and a community house to test the latest assistive living technologies will be among the health simulation features.
