Named after Norwich microbiologist Dr Ella Barnes CBE, the hi-spec building will house organisations specialising in food, life and health science innovation.
It is one of a number of buildings successfully constructed by RG Carter on the prestigious Norwich Research Park.
The project had a number of challenges which were overcome to keep the build within the 42-week contracted period and on-budget, including Covid restrictions, varying site levels and changing project requirements.
A key challenge was designing the canopy to sufficiently support the timber soffit. This was resolved by introducing a secondary supporting timber frame to support the timber panels.
With its cutting-edge and contemporary external and internal design, the Ella Barnes building is one of the most exciting and sought-after buildings on Norwich Research Park.
