OVERVIEW

Central Teaching Laboratories

The University of Liverpool’s new Central Teaching Laboratories building has transformed the way Physical Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Archaeology, Geography, and Earth and Ocean Science) are taught at the university. The three storey building enhances the student experience by providing high quality, contemporary learning facilities, to support a  modular teaching course and promote inter-disciplinary learning between the Sciences. 

Flexible teaching space allows for both small and large groups. 15 state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, several of which have a capacity for over 200 students, are accessible to all of the departments. A large central atrium at the heart of the building provides circulation routes and break-out spaces that encourage interaction between students.

Sustainable features have been incorporated into the design to help the university reach its ambition of achieving a high BREEAM rating. These include a green wall, rainwater harvesting, a heat recovery system and solar panels. The Central Teaching Laboratories won the inaugural S-Lab Award 2012 for ‘Best New Laboratory Building’.
