University of Dundee commence Medical School extension
The University of Dundee has announced that it has teamed up with Archial to plan an £11.2m extension to its School of Medicine at Ninewells.

Taking the form of a 600sq/m extension to the north side of the existing building, alongside a refurbishment of the library and teaching space. This will serve to expand the amount of teaching space available and incorporate state of the art IT and electronic learning equipment.

The extension will feature a frontage adorned with artwork by Janice Aitken, a lecturer from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, who has illustrated an aspect of medical research with a transparent panel design.

These represent elements of a eukaryotic cell, a fundamental building block of the human body, whilst imbuing a colourful personality to the structure.

ISG are acting as main contractor with Gardiner & Theobald serving as project managers.

Work begins this month with completion scheduled by 2014/15.
