Morgan Sindall has started work to deliver the new £27 million Mathematical Sciences Building at the University of Warwick.

Being developed at the Russell Group University’s main campus on the outskirts of Coventry, the six-storey building will create a space for the co-location of inter-disciplinary research and training for the Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics departments.

Built around a large central atrium, the building will be home to the school’s undergraduate and postgraduate students along with a number of high-profile academic researchers.

Professor Colin Sparrow, Professor of Mathematics and Head of Warwick’s Mathematics Institute, said: “The University of Warwick’s Mathematical scientists have substantial world-renowned reputations for pure and applied research, developing new research programmes that make a difference globally.

“This new facility will enable our three departments to grow and to work even more closely together. In particular, it will allow us to exploit Warwick’s position as one of the five UK universities recently chosen as partners in the creation of the Turing Institute, including interdisciplinary space for both research and teaching in data science. It will also allow us to bring our graduate training programmes closer together in a new Mathematical Sciences Graduate School.”

Morgan Sindall’s area director for the Midlands, Richard Fielding, said: “This is the latest in a series of buildings we are delivering for the principal higher education establishments in the region. We currently have over 15,000 sq metres of teaching and accommodation space under construction in projects with a combined value of over £75 million.

“We are naturally very pleased that the University of Warwick has entrusted us to deliver this key part of their campus redevelopment.”

The eighteen month build programme is expected to complete in time for opening at the beginning of the 2018 academic year.
