    A new £17m three-storey building housing cutting-edge laboratories and facilities including a 3D lecture theatre are at the heart of major plans to expand Engineering at Lancaster University.

    The new 2,700sq/m building will become a showcase for modern engineering. Work on the building is set to begin in Spring 2020 with completion expected in the Summer 2021. It will be built in close continuity with the existing Engineering building, which opened to students in 2015 and has won a host of architecture and environmental design awards.

    It will be equipped with an array of specialist cutting-edge equipment to support world-leading research – including a new distillation column for Chemical Engineering, laboratories for bioengineering and hydrogen energy technology, and an integrated advanced manufacturing environment. A new 3D lecture theatre will allow for the development of new teaching concepts where lecturers could show students around complex virtual images in a 3D environment – helping to provide a clearer understanding and novel learning experiences.
