Enabling, infrastructure and public realm works are underway on Science Central to make the site development ready, with construction of the first building, The Core, due to be completed in the autumn of 2014. The design for the SAgE Building has begun and is expected to open at the beginning of the academic year in September 2017.
The next building to follow the SAgE Building is the Teaching Centre. There is a need for new facilities for the University’s Business School and also new facilities to accommodate the University’s conferencing requirements.

The Teaching Centre will provide conferencing facilities, lecture theatres, offices for co-located staff and teaching rooms; it is to be designed to complement and be compatible with the SAgE building and the Science City master plan. The net construction cost of the build has been estimated at between GBP 15 m and GBP 20m, with the total cost for delivering the scheme estimated at GBP 30m.
The building is to be designed to BREEAM Excellent. Completion of the build is to be by June 2018.
