The University of Wolverhampton Science Park has submitted plans to build a new science, technology, and prototyping centre…
Plans for a £10m science and technology centre have been submitted to Wolverhampton City Council. The proposals were drawn up by The Fairhursts Design Group on behalf of the University of Wolverhampton Science Park.
The plans comprise of a new centre will have a gross internal area of almost 44,000 sq ft and will see amends to the parking layout, including the addition of 130 spaces. It will also include space for five workshops, 11 laboratories, and 35 offices.
The move comes more than a year after the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) awarded the institution £4.9m to fund the expansion. The development will form part of the region’s growth deal.
The plans, if approved, will also see improvement to Glashier Drive.
It is expected the centre will open in 2017, providing the application process is green lit.
