New £49m Sciences Building planned for University of Sussex
A new £49m Sciences Building is set to be built at the University of Sussex, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
While development plans are still being drawn up, it is hoped the new building will contain teaching laboratories and spaces for Life Sciences students, including those studying on the proposed new Pharmacy degree course, a Bio Innovation Centre, bringing leading researchers from Sussex together with industry, as well as a new Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience Centre.
Furthermore, it should also include an expansion of the world-renowned Genome Damage and Stability Centre, an expanded Sussex Centre for Advanced Microscopy, as well as a new Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery Centre.
Other additions should be a new joint Medical School/Life Sciences Screening and Target Discovery Centre and a café and social meeting spaces for staff and students.
Professor Michael Davies, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), said: "To build on this important work and explore the new frontiers of biomedicine, we are planning to create a state-of-the-art teaching and research facility that will bring all biomedical researchers at Sussex under one roof."
The implementation of a very sturdy and resilient solution for controlling access to the building is also a very important stage, and this is specifically where Access Control UK can put its extensive experience to very good use. We employ a variety of access control technologies in order to create advanced solutions, enable users to exert solid, reliable and accurate control over the access to specific premises or zones.
The access control systems supplied by Access Control UK also support an effective Fire Roll Call feature, which will enable employers to evacuate the personnel off the premises in a very orderly and clear manner, should a fire, explosion or some other type of catastrophe occur.
