Hawkins Brown Norwich

Contractor RG Carter has completed a new research and education building at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.

Research being undertaken in the building includes treatments for diseases affecting ageing populations, immunology and anti-biotic resistance. It will also house education facilities for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The Hawkins Brown-designed facilities are intended to improve translational research in collaboration with the NHS whilst the clinical teaching areas are focussed on providing healthcare learning environments for the university’s medical school.

The £12.5m building is located at the city’s research park and is the first block to be completed under an expansion plan of the park.

Earlier this year, Hawkins Brown said more higher education work in the UK was helping swell its revenue which it said it expects to be £14.5m this year, up from the £11.4m it posted last time.
