Day visit to Cambridge University

Date & Time: 5th April 2017

Sainsbury Laboratory, Bateman Street, Cambridge, CB2 1LR

A day-long exploration of some major established and new buildings in Cambridge, gaining some insights into some of the most ambitious investment plans of any university in the UK.

Included visits to the Stirling Prize-winning Sainsbury Laboratory and the Attenborough Building on the New Museums Site. Lunch at Girton College with an introductory talk by the Mistress, Professor Susan Smith, followed by a talk by Heather Topel on masterplans for West and North-west Cambridge. We visited both of these sites, including tours of the iconic Schlumberger Gould Research Building and the new Maxwell Building for the Cavendish Physics Lab. We also heard about the current £350 million scheme to rebuild the Cavendish on the West Cambridge site.
