Nottingham University supports collaboration between research and local businesses

Won as part of a national design competition (project value £4.4m), the Ingenuity Centre houses local and national start-ups and small enterprises in areas such as Big Data & Digital, Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace and Energy. Bond Bryan created a simple and relatively deep plan building form that has maximized the limited space available for the project in order to control the overall height of the building and create efficient floor plates. The design reinterprets a more traditional built form, creating a welcoming and exciting building that reflects the aspirations of the University.
