Facility encourages educational and community collaboration
Lancaster University describes itself as ‘an economic anchor and driver of innovation’ – something which it is keen to demonstrate via the buildings it creates.
In the development of its Health Innovation Campus – a four storey, 350,000 sq ft building situated on previously undeveloped land to the north of its Bailrigg campus – the University is offering its students, community and local businesses something entirely new altogether.
Though the campus will be home to its Medical School and Division of Health Research, the building also offers the opportunity for academics, healthcare providers, science & technology firms and SMEs to hire space in which they can collaborate with students to drive forward developments in some of the UK’s most significant health and wellbeing challenges.
As well as office space and hot-desking facilities, the university says the campus will ‘become part of an eco-system that maximises the value of co-design and co-production to develop health solutions through cross-sector, multi-disciplinary collaborations’.
Development of the new campus has been supported by Lancashire Enterprise Partnership Growth Deal funding, as well as the European Regional Development Fund.
Following the creation of its iconic new sports hall, Lancaster University has highlighted itself as a truly forward-thinking establishment which provides its students with the very best opportunities to flourish, with our teams once again appointed to deliver a complete Approved Inspector service for the new campus.
