RG Carter has begun work on a new £30m teaching block for the University of East Anglia.

The four-storey building, designed by FBM Architects, will be open to students at its Norwich campus in September 2019.

The block will feature lecture rooms and seminar rooms for students across a range of disciplines including science, technology, engineering and maths subjects.

The top three storeys will comprise teaching laboratories, while the ground floor will house social and teaching space for more than 500 students.

Last year RG Carter completed the university’s 500-room accommodation building, Barton and Hickling House.
