Faculty of Biological Sciences – Refurbishment

  • Work begins: December 2018
  • Work due to be completed: Winter 2020
  • Cost: £31m
  • Contractor: Styles & Wood


The University of Leeds Faculty of Biological Sciences occupies five buildings on the University’s main campus and in order to meet demand for growth in staff and student numbers additional space is required.

This project will deliver this additional space by providing a modular teaching building (complete) and refurbishing approximately 8,500sq.m. of space within primarily the Garstang building (Grade II listed) and the connected Astbury building to a higher spatial efficiency than achieved presently.

The investment and improvements will continue driving forward the growth of research income and create a new flexible model for open laboratory and office environments, facilitating collaborative working.
