The new £10.1 million three-storey Science, Technology and Prototyping facility, recently completed by Clegg Construction, provides a combination of laboratory, workshop and high-specification office space.
Science and technology-based businesses looking to relocate or expand their activities into the Midlands are being invited to take a tour of the modern work spaces, workshops and Category 1 and 2 laboratories on Thursday 28th September 2017 as part of Wolverhampton Business Week.
The new Science Centre, based at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park in Glaisher Drive, will focus on aerospace, automotive, construction and life-science sectors along with their associated supply-chains.
Nigel Babb, University of Wolverhampton Science Park Commercial Director, said: “It has been really exciting to see the building finished. The new centre will offer unrivalled specialist space to scientific-based businesses wanting to develop and enhance their research and development activities.
“We think it will attract science and technology-based companies right to heart of Wolverhampton where they can grow and develop new products and processes.”
Staff will be running demonstrations with state-of-the art design and prototyping equipment, including 3D printing and virtual modelling and will be on hand to give advice on product development, intellectual property, technical screening and funding support.
The tour takes place between 2.00 pm and 6.00 pm. Book a place: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/tour-of-the-new-science-centre-tickets-37306613084
