The Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) is a centre for technological research currently under construction in Glasgow, Scotland. It forms part of the University of Strathclyde campus in the heart of the city.
This project secured a £6.7 million funding from the European Regional Development Fund and another £26 million from the Scottish Government. The University itself is supplying the other £57 million needed to reach its £89 million budget needed to create the centre.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Where The money Is Coming From )〕
The work started on the triangular, nine-storey, steel-framed building in March 2012 with a completion date set in 2014. The facility will be built to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ‘A’ rating standards – the industry’s highest energy-efficiency standard. This 25,000m2 space can accommodate around 1200 workers from numerous fields, including engineering, researching and project management from the university and outside industry. It will include open plan space for offices, three lecture theatres and areas for specialist laboratory equipment.
In addition to the Technology and Innovation Centre, a 5000m2 Industry Engagement Building, which will be located adjacent to the TIC building, will accommodate around and extra 500 occupants to the already huge work force at the TIC. Both buildings have been designed by BDP.
The research that will be carried out in the Technology and Innovation Centre, by around 850 researchers from the University, is in the fields of: Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing, Advanced Science and Technology, Bioanotechnology, Business Engagement, Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation (CMAC), Energy, Health Technologies at Strathclyde, Human and Social Aspects of Technology, Photonics and Sensors, and Asset Management.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Research Themes )〕
The company which is undertaking the construction of the Technology and Innovation Centre are the Lend Lease Group. They have been the major constructors at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino and the Museum for African Art.
