The University of Wolverhampton’s new Science Centre has been nominated in two categories in the region’s premier property and construction awards.

The £10.1m centre located at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park, which was completed late last year, has been nominated in two of the eight categories for the RICS (Royal Institute for Chartered Surveyors) Awards 2108, West Midlands.

Designed by Fairhursts Design Group and built by Clegg Construction, the building has been nominated in the Design by Innovation category and the Regeneration category.

The centre has high quality workshop, office and category 1 and 2 laboratory space over 4,000 square metres and offers specialist space for science, technology and engineering businesses, catering for the aerospace, automotive, building technology and life science sectors.

The first three tenants – Crestwood Environmental, Deeo Design and Engineering and VOSC (Vehicle Occupant Safety Centre) moved in last month.
