R G Carter has commenced work on Building 60, the latest addition to the UEA estate, which is the first project to be procured through the UEA’s bespoke Framework.

We have a long established relationship with the UEA, and are very proud to continue creating the Universities standards of educational excellence for Norwich, through the delivery of this state-of-the-art teaching and learning space.

The building will provide a comprehensive range of laboratory facilities, covering science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), with the ground floor housing teaching space for over 500 students. The spaces are linked by an atrium where social learning and creative interaction between faculties will occur. As a student-focused building, the design purposely brings together general teaching with science laboratories, ensuring a variety of departments use the building. This will encourage a cross-fertilisation of ideas between students, academics and departments.

Rose Jenkins, Deputy Director of Estates and Facilities said: “This key building will provide outstanding learning and teaching spaces in support of growing student numbers and delivering an excellent experience for students, staff and visitors”.

We are looking forward to working in partnership with the university, to deliver this amazing science building that will spur UEA staff and students ever closer to brilliant new discoveries.
