The first phase, extended the existing Engineering Hub, to provide extra space which now supports the award-winning partnership between the University and its industry partner Siemens, as well as the addition of Electrical and Electronic Engineering to the School of Engineering’s portfolio.  The Hub underwent extensive internal conversion works and remained occupied during the second phase of the project.


The second phase created a world-class teaching and learning space for the University’s Schools of Computer Science and Mathematics & Physics. It includes a 500-seat lecture theatre and catering facility, enhancing the University’s ability to accommodate large-scale events.


The scheme is designed to integrate with the University’s masterplan for the campus and allow potential future phases. The development acts as a gateway building to the south campus, strengthening its links with the city.


The accommodation includes

  • engineering workshops
  • mix of research and teaching laboratories
  • seminar rooms
  • computer suites plus robotics workshop
  • academic, research, PGR and administration offices
  • 500-seat lecture theatre
  • catering facilities

Throughout the concept and scheme design phases, maber was integral to the briefing and engagement sessions, which were undertaken with the various user groups, which established the detailed brief.

In developing the detailed design and through into the construction phase, maber has shown an ability and willingness to work closely with the Construction management team from NTU as well as the wider Design Team. maber have fully engaged with the value engineering initiatives, which have been brought to the table to ensure NTU’s quality aspirations and objectives are maintained whilst still achieving the BREEAM Excellent accreditation for the project.
