Brief: The University of Leeds Faculty of Biological Sciences occupies five buildings on the University’s main campus and required additional space to meet demand for growth in staff and student numbers.

The £4.6m construction of a new two-storey modular teaching building to the east of the Irene Manton Building provided extra space, along with refurbishing approximately 8,500sq.m. of space within the existing buildings to a higher spatial efficiency.
