Agri-Informatics Building at Cranfield University

We are delighted to have handed over the new Agri-Informatics Building to Cranfield University, a facility that will support both the UK Government and industry in ensuring greater resilience of agricultural systems.

The new hub for soil science and data analysis has created further research learning areas for students, with breakout meeting room spaces, a small kitchenette area, toilet facilities and lift to the first floor. Support spaces include informatics and sensor laboratories, map archives, wet laboratory and storage for growth media.

Once occupied, the two-storey building will be home to various research groups including members of the University and its strategic partners, such as the National Reference Centre for Soils and associated Land Information Systems, LandIS. It will be shared with Agri-EPI Centre who will focus on agri-tech research and innovation.

The steel framed building joins onto the campus’ district heating system, which required careful planning with our M&E specialists to ensure the system and wider campus were not disrupted by our works.

The new facility sits opposite our first scheme for the University – the Aerospace Integrated Research Centre, known as AIRC (see above right), and in close proximity to our current scheme – the new Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre (DARTeC).
