Canterbury Christ Church University reached an exciting milestone in the development of the new Science, Technology, Health, Engineering and Medicine building, with a handover of keys marking practical completion.
The Estates Masterplan Team, together with Hamilton Architects, have been working collaboratively with the main contractors Gilbert Ash since October 2018.
Emmett Holmes, Senior Site Manager of GA, handed over the keys to Stephen Hawkins, Deputy Director of Estates and Facilities, on Monday 14 September. We have now started the process of fitting out the internal spaces of Building 2, with furniture, fixtures and equipment, moving facilities from campus, and having various new kit installed.

Building 2 is set to open in January 2021, and will be home to our expanding Science, Technology, Engineering, Health and Medicine provision. These new multi-million-pound facilities will be instrumental in creating a new generation of skilled STEHM professionals, placing the University as a key contributor to the growing STEHM industries in the region and nationally.
