Orion and Stephenson

Orion and Stephenson
Start date: March 2015

Completion date: September 2015

Investment: £6m

We’ve invested £6m to expand, upgrade and refurbish our science and engineering facilities in both the Orion and Stephenson buildings.

The project, completed in late summer 2015, includes a three-storey extension to the Orion building. This has enabled us to substantially upgrade our learning environment with access to the latest industry-standard equipment for a highly industrially relevant and representative learning experience. The project also upgraded our testing and characterisation facilities, primarily in the Stephenson building.
