Building for the future at the University of East Anglia


R G Carter has been selected by the University of East Anglia to deliver its new £30m teaching building.

The construction company recently began work on the four-storey building which will be open to students at its Norwich campus in September 2019.

Paul Hamilton, Senior Project Manager at R G Carter said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the University of East Anglia on another great project. Working together, we are committed to delivering a brilliant new state-of-the-art building that will spur UEA staff and students ever closer to brilliant new discoveries.”

The new development will provide a comprehensive range of lecture rooms and seminar rooms for students across all disciplines including science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.

The top three floors will comprise teaching laboratories and the ground floor will house social and teaching space for more than 500 students.

The building, currently named Building 60 until the official opening, is part of the university ’s 2030 vision which includes further investment on the campus.

R G Carter completed the university ’s 500 room accommodation block, Barton and Hickling House, in 2017.
