Bam has been appointed to build a £14m Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre for Sheffield Hallam University.
Construction work is scheduled to start in February 2018 and it will form the centrepiece of the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.
The centre, which is designed by HLM Architects, will include a 7.5m high indoor laboratory, 3D biochemical and gait analysis and scanning, manufacturing workshop, MRI, CT, ultrasound, body composition measurement and physiological testing and technology demonstration hub.
