The fully digitised space offers a range of advanced technologies and new ways of working that will familiarise and prepare students with skills for careers in science and industry.

The Hub integrates laboratories from around the campus into a single dedicated facility, increasing flexibility and efficiency on a technology platform. It drives forward the University’s long-term strategy to maintain its status as a world-class higher education institution.

University of Aberdeen Science Teaching Hub laboratory construction

Valuable opportunities for education

Overall, we used the project as a context for learning at all levels from primary school children to university students, graduates and adults looking to get into work. We delivered classroom-based workshops, careers support, site visits and work experience where suitable. This educational work raises aspirations and awareness of the opportunities in construction, and helps young people make informed decisions about their future.

The project had contributed £8.77m total social value representing a SVA (social value add) equivalent to 44% of the project value.
