The development is a new University building which enables students and industry to perform fundamental research projects for medical technologies and innovation at Nottingham Trent University Clifton Campus. This project is closely intertwined with another Nottingham Trent University project which will be a technology commercialisation facility on Enterprise Zone in Nottingham.
The primary objective through the MTIF developments is to enable NTU to perform advanced research in convergent medical systems that reduces both the time to market and the cost associated with the creation and commercialisation of innovative health technologies, medical devices and therapeutics, thus raising local company competitiveness and productivity in the global health and wellbeing sector.
At the rear of the building, the brick is supplemented by zinc cladding. It is proposed that the joint seams used to connect the metal sheets are installed at angles to continue the reeded theme of the structural columns.
