NWP were awarded the prestigious National Graphene Institute (NGI) for the University of Manchester. Following the successful isolation of graphene by two UoM professor’s back in 2004 the university has been at the forefront of research into the world’s newest super element. The development features 1,500m² of clean room space over 5 storeys. The building is also split into two parts, with just a 50mm gap between them, separating the labs and clean rooms from the mechanical & electrical services to minimise vibration. NWP were responsible for the installation of the building services within the clean room areas.
