MIEP University of Nottingham
The Modelling of Interdisciplinary Engineering Processes Facility is a research building for the University of Nottingham and is situated on their main campus.
Valued at £2.2 million, the MIEP provides flexible research and workshop space arranged around a main circulation atrium. The science area of the University is of a more urban character than the rest of the campus and the site for the new facility was quite restricted. Nevertheless, the atrium is a well daylit space which functions as the main vertical circulation space for the building. It provides the valuable forum for ‘accidental’ meetings so important for interaction in University buildings.
