The Institute for Manufacturing formally took possession of the keys to the building from developer Marriott Construction this week at a special event to celebrate the completion of the £15 million building.
Guest of Honour at the event was leading British industrialist Dr Alan Reece, whose major donation to the Institute enabled the building to go ahead. It will be named the Alan Reece building in his honour. He spoke at the event of how very pleased he was to be involved in such a successful high quality and worthwhile project.
The striking two-storey split-level building to the south side of the site is based around an attractive central courtyard and will provide laboratory and office space for the Institute, a division of the Department of Engineering.
