UoB | Test & Research Facility | 3fl | U/C.

Saw another UoB thread and was reminded of this proposal... Couldn't find another thread on it but point me in the right direction if there is one!

Erection of 3 storey Test and Research Facility
Quote:
Multi-million civil engineering research facility set for University of Birmingham

The university’s School of Engineering plans to build the test and research facility – which is backed by £20m of Government investment – within the Edgbaston campus.

The National Buried Infrastructure Facility (NBIF) will be equipped to test all aspects of buried infrastructure from cables, culverts to barriers at full scale. The state-of-the-art facility will be equipped to test linear infrastructure utilising a strong floor facility.

A £21.7m award has been made to the university as part of a capital investment by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC).
The facility will enable researchers, industry professionals and local businesses to collaborate on projects which promise to accelerate the process of research to industrial implementation.

The test hall is a triple-height space featuring a 250m² pit which is 6m deep in its central bay.

This central bay (below) is controlled by actuators underneath the floor of the pit allowing for a variety of ground conditions to be simulated. A test rig, test assembly, strong floor, material storage and material preparation areas are located around the pit where specialist equipment is housed and initial tests conducted.

I like the building. I like the fact that more research is being done in Brum.

Don't like the idea that it will be apparently staffed by ghosts, though.
