New conference centre at Babraham Research Campus
A new conference and social facilities building, to be named The Cambridge Building, has been completed by SDC Builders and handed over to Babraham Bioscience Technologies (BBT), the organisation that develops and manages the Babraham Research Campus.
The new facility which includes a 200-seater lecture theatre, with additional standalone meeting and break-out spaces, a new restaurant, cafe and bar area, is designed as a focal point for both social and conference activities for the research campus and the wider life science community.
Derek Jones, chief executive of BBT said: “We are delighted to have a modern world-class facility here at Babraham that will become the social heart of the campus.
“The ability for both the academic and commercial community of the campus and beyond, to have the capability to hold conferences and meetings is an important new feature of the site.
“The Cambridge Building will support campus activities and we’d also welcome interest from potential users from outside the campus.”
The Cambridge Building will be open for business from the beginning of January and BBT is planning for a formal opening during 2017.
