Our Project Services team are delighted to have played their part in bringing chemistry back to Swansea University.
The £9m project delivered by construction partner Kier commenced in November 2016 and involved extensive demolition, alteration and construction works which have transformed the upper north west area of the Grove Building into a multi-million pound hub for Chemistry. The new facility will be opening its doors to new students at the start of the new academic year this September.
The reintroduction of chemistry is an interdisciplinary initiative supported by the Colleges of Science, Engineering and Medicine, providing students with cutting-edge teaching and research laboratory facilities including modern, accessible and active learning environments, break-out space, a PC laboratory, academic office space and high quality research laboratories
The research being carried out within these brand new facilities will cover four themes: energy; health; new and advanced molecules and materials; and water and the environment.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Richard B Davies described the reintroduction of chemistry as “a sign of Swansea’s progress, ambition and confidence”, in the wake of the University breaking into the top 25 in the UK for research.
