Faculty of Biological Sciences Modular Building and Refurbishment

  • Work begins: October 2017
  • Work due to be completed: Autumn 2020
  • Cost: £35.6m (£4.6m construction of modular build and £31m refurbishment of existing teaching spaces)
  • Contractor: Extraspace

Brief: The University of Leeds Faculty of Biological Sciences occupies five buildings on the University’s main campus and requires additional space to meet demand for growth in staff and student numbers. The £4.6m construction of a new two-storey modular teaching building to the east of the Irene Manton building is part of the plan to provide this space, along with refurbishing approximately 8,500sq.m. of space within the existing buildings to a higher spatial efficiency than that achieved presently.
