New win: University of Cambridge Earth Sciences building.


A prestigious project for our Cambridge office and Science & Research team.

We’re celebrating a fantastic new project win – the brand new Earth Sciences building at the University of Cambridge.

The Department of Earth Sciences provides world-leading education and carries out ground-breaking research into the study of our planet’s physical characteristics: from earthquakes and raindrops, to floods and fossils. The department has a rich history – most notably it developed the theory of plate tectonics, and a certain David Attenborough is an alumni…

A £65 million development will give the department a world-class high-spec teaching and research facility.

The new Earth Sciences building will be an exciting addition to the university’s estate. We were part of the winning team led by Jestico & Wiles architects, working closely with them to develop the overall proposal that focuses on providing the department with a highly sustainable building.

A vote of confidence.

Being awarded the project is particularly special, as it’s another significant win as part of our on-going framework with the university. It’s also a testament to our successful way of working on previous projects: as the submission team is currently delivering the university’s Cavendish III building, one of the largest and most demanding Science & Research projects in the UK. As such, this win is a true vote of confidence in the Cavendish III team – both in the quality of our work and our strong relationship with the client.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
