Britain’s best-known natural history film-maker Sir David Attenborough has officially opened the University of Bristol’s new £56.5 million Life Sciences building.
The Life Sciences building is the University of Bristol’s biggest construction project to-date and will be the focal point for globally-leading research, needed to tackle the key challenges of the 21st century such as food security and environmental conservation.
Work to construct the 13,500 square metre iconic Life Sciences building, which is sited on the corner of Tyndall Avenue and St Michael’s Hill, began in July 2011 and has just welcomed its first intake of students.
Patrick Finch, Bursar at the University of Bristol, said: “This building and its surrounding public realm has represented the most ambitious project taken on by the University’s Estates Office to-date.”
Nicholas Pearson Associates is pleased be part of the consultant team for this ambitious project from the start of the campus masterplaning process in 2004 through consultation, planning, tender and construction phases to completion in the autumn of 2014. We provided ecological survey and licence support, landscape and visual impact assessment, photomontage and comprehensive landscape design services to the project.
