Plans for University of Lincoln medical school building approved

Plans for a new, £21 million medical school building at the University of Lincoln (UoL) have been approved, providing a significant, new opportunity for medical students to study in state-of-the art-facilities in the UK.

Perfect Circle – a consortium comprising of Pick Everard, Gleeds and AECOM – is delivering project management, cost management, BREEAM consultancy services and design services for the scheme at UoL, located at the Brayford Pool Campus, Lincoln.

The provision of these services have been enabled by the Scape National Built Environment Consultancy Services (BECS) framework.

The new, five-storey building is due to complete in Spring 2021 and will comprise: lecture theatres; laboratories; clinical and prosection anatomy suites, equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic tools; and a science library.

Mock consultation rooms in the clinical suite will allow students to experience real life situations encountered by those in the medical profession, using the latest technology.

Victoria Brambini, managing director of Perfect Circle, said: “This new facility marks a significant step-change in the provision of state-of-the-art training for the next generation of medical professionals. As well as inspiring future medical professionals, this exciting development will support the government’s efforts to address the NHS’ skills shortage. The medical school will play an important role in driving the local economy and will transform the campus.”

With aspirations to reach carbon neutrality, the building has been designed to meet BREEAM Excellent standards, with features including a living wall and photovoltaic panels.

Our BECS framework has been designed to accelerate and optimise the provision of consultancy services for exciting schemes such as this and I am delighted to see UoL engaging with Perfect Circle on this important project.

“Our health service is arguably our nation’s greatest achievement and this modern medical training facility will help create the additional skills to ensure that our NHS remains fighting fit for the future.”

In March 2018, UoL and the University of Nottingham announced an exciting collaboration to provide a medical education for students across Lincolnshire, providing more opportunities and a high-class education.

Through this innovative partnership, students will study for a University of Nottingham Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) medical degree at the UoL site, which is set to open its doors to its first intake of 95 students in September 2019.
