A BEHIND-THE-SCENES look at Nottingham’s £27 million Biosciences build has been unveiled by the project’s main contractor, Willmott Dixon.

The short film offers viewers the chance to further understand the building process and get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the Nottingham’s newest buildings. It features exclusive footage of the existing site before building works commenced, a time lapse of the construction from groundworks to topping out and internal images.

The project, completed last month (April), is a mixed-use science and business hub located in the heart of the city centre and features facilities including laboratories, office space, chemical and solvent storage rooms and a café.

Nick Heath, operations director at Willmott Dixon in the East Midlands, said: “We are so proud to have been part of this iconic scheme at BioCity that will have both a positive impact on the local community and cement Nottingham as a leading hub for life sciences development in the UK.

“The biosciences building has been a great project for us, allowing us to support the skills and training of young people locally through site visits, training and apprenticeships.”

The build was completed in conjunction with a number of local partners with bases across the East Midlands, including Nottingham City Council, CPMG, Pick Everard, Gleeds, Couch Perry Wilkes and Morgan Tucker.
