The new building is a flagship building in the Knowledge Gateway research and business park which is being developed to become the location of choice in the eastern region for knowledge-based enterprises in science, technology, and the creative sector.

The state-of-the-art building cost £21 million to build, and through using a combination of energy efficient design and the use of low carbon technologies, the building saves more than one ton of carbon per day.

In addition to a virtual Bloomberg trading floor, innovation booths for group working and dedicated spaces for postgraduate and research students, the building also includes a winter garden with an Eden Project-like domed roof at the heart of the site creating its own micro-climate.
