Contractor, Henry Brothers, has completed work on a new Medical Technologies Innovation Facility (MTIF) for Nottingham Trent University.
The two-storey building at the university’s Clifton Campus is part of a new dual-site facility which will produce the next generation of medical devices and technologies.
The £23m unit will bring organisations and clinicians together with university researchers to develop their ideas and get them to market as quickly as possible.
The site on the Clifton Campus was developed by Henry Brothers and will focus on research and development, linking academics with industry to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to medical technology development.
A second facility, at the Boots site on the Nottingham Enterprise Zone, will be dedicated to the development, clinical production and commercialisation of new medical technologies.
Ian Taylor, managing director of Henry Brothers Midlands, said: “This contract, awarded under the Pagabo Framework, has been an exciting project to work on for the Henry Brothers team and we are very pleased to have successfully partnered once again with Nottingham Trent University to build another first-class facility at the university’s Clifton Campus.
“This is the latest in a number of projects that we have delivered for universities in the Midlands and we are proud to have played a part in such an important scheme.”
The project team also included Edge; Maber; Gleeds; Curtins; and Couch, Perry, Wilkes.
MTIF will bring companies, clinicians and university researchers together to take their ideas from bench to bedside, accelerating the speed of innovation to improve patient care
The project was supported by £9.7m from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, through its Local Growth Fund allocation.
Nottingham Trent University vice chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, said: “This development is a major part of the investment that NTU is making in ensuring the future sustainability and growth of the economy of the city, county and region.”
MTIF managing director, Mike Hannay, added: “MTIF will bring companies, clinicians and university researchers together to take their ideas from bench to bedside, accelerating the speed of innovation to improve patient care.”
