Plans to build a landmark £40m innovation and enterprise hub in Leeds based on topographical and utility survey data provided by Met Consultancy group have been recommended for approval.
The University Innovation and Enterprise Centre (UIEC) will provide office and laboratory space for technology-led companies to develop and grow. The scheme is being brought forward by the University of Leeds with the aim of establishing the institution and city at the forefront of innovation and enterprise in the UK where it is also expected to support hundreds of jobs.
Laid out across three connected arms with a central atrium, a seven storey, 107,000 sq ft building is envisaged on a landscaped car park area in the south east portion of the university’s campus, off Woodhouse Lane. Working with scheme designers, Associated Architects, Curtins and AA Projects, Met Consultancy undertook the scheme surveys between May and July 2015.
