Construction of the University of Central Lancashire’s £35 million-plus state-of-the art facility, has now completed. We are delighted to have been part of the project team, working on behalf of BAM, ensuring that the commissioning of all MEP systems has been fully validated to the appropriate BSRIA / CIBSE codes and project requirements.
Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC) is part of the university’s £250m masterplan being delivered at the Preston campus. The EIC building hosts specialist training space with equipment including flight simulators, a graphene centre, automotive research and manufacturing, and specialist electronic labs, all with an aim of producing 500 additional locally-trained engineering graduates each year.
The facility will also act as a venue for collaboration and knowledge transfer between University researchers, industry experts, businesses and students. Focus areas include research into 3D printing, artificial intelligence, drone technology and the Internet of Things.
