The new four-storey 4,000m² building comprises two separate, and functionally different, blocks of accommodation, joined by an internal street. The south block accommodation is designed to provide cellular office space and small meeting rooms, which will be predominantly low tech and naturally ventilated.  The north block will provide larger spaces such as teaching accommodation, generic research labs, equipment areas, and open plan office/write-up space for research staff.  The ground floor throughout the two blocks will accommodate administrative offices for the School of Medicine and Dentistry and for the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences, together with meeting and teaching accommodation.
