Phase 1 of 3 starts on site 

Work has started on site on a new research facility for the School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh.

The three-storey Waddington building, designed by Holmes, will link to the existing Rutherford building and will provide the school with purpose designed laboratory space and modern and energy-efficient office facilities in an attractive, landscaped setting.

The new building will complement and enhance the surrounding garden landscape with a subtle and open design approach – large floor-to-ceiling windows will offer attractive uninterrupted views. The three storey element facing the garden has a raised parapet which will mask a future roof mounted greenhouse.

The proposed building is intended as phase 1 of a three-phase development, in accordance with the University's masterplan for King's Buildings Campus.
