Thursday 1 March saw our Mathematical Sciences Building project officially "topped out" - an event celebrating the construction as it reaches is highest point.
Director of Estates, James Breckon, was joined by Morgan Sindall’s Area Director in the Midlands, Richard Fielding and representatives of the departments of Computer Science, Maths and Statistics to mark the occasion by decorating a steel beam on the top floor of the six-storey facility with equations and diagrams.
This building will enable closer collaboration between our globally-recognised Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics departments. It's structured around a main central atrium, catering to both postgraduate and undergraduate students and providing a base for a number of notable academic researchers, including some working as part of the high-profile national institute for data science: The Alan Turing Institute.
The site team are currently removing the external scaffolds and internal works are progressing well.
James Breckon said:
“Our campus is seeing major investments on all fronts at the moment – everything from key mathematical and scientific facilities like this one, to projects for arts, sports, medicine and more. It was a pleasure to meet everyone involved in the building of this facility and take a moment to reflect and thank them for all their commitment and hard work in collaborating to achieve this exciting milestone. I very much look forward to completion and bringing the facility smoothly into use for my academic colleagues.”
The Mathematical Sciences Building was made possible thanks to a generous grant of £2,000,000 from The Wolfson Foundation, and additional donations made by alumni and friends of Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics at Warwick.
