The new £64.5m facility for Science, Engineering, Technology & Health which was built on the back-lands of the former Canterbury Prison site.
Michael Nugent Ltd provided the full mechanical and electrical services installation for this huge project which will now provide the University with new teaching facilities for science, engineering, technology and health. These state of the art teaching spaces, science labs, workshops and bespoke sports science department will house around 2,500 staff and students. The project was heavily serviced and challenging, requiring vast and complex mechanical and electrical installations. The science labs which were on the top floor were particularly challenging as they needed very heavy servicing under strict protocols requiring coordination from all parties.
The STEM building is just one element of the overall Canterbury Christ Church University, which is investing £150m in campus improvements and will take up to 15 years to complete. The new university will also house the Kent & Medway Medical School, a shared initiative with the University of Kent.
