About the building

Planning permission was granted in November 2018 with construction starting on site in February 2019.

When completed, the striking new building will provide office space for growing firms to expand their research and development facilities near like-minded firms, creating a more effective hub of commercial activity within the Science Park.

It will also include a café and a conference space, allowing companies to host conferences, events, symposiums and more, providing a central hub for networking across the entire Nottingham Science Park site.

Construction of the new building has been part funded by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). D2N2 is one of 38 LEPs across England. D2N2’s private sector-led Board represents business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and voluntary and community organisations. It promotes economic growth and jobs creation in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire; using UK Government and European funding.

About Elizabeth Garrett Anderson

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was Britain’s first female doctor, magistrate and mayor, as well as being a member of the suffragette movement. As women were barred from becoming doctors in the 19th century, Garrett Anderson learned French and travelled to Paris to get her medical degree, completing this in 1870. She was an active campaigner for the right for women to become doctors, founding and opening a medical school for women in 1877.

She was active in the women’s suffrage movement, presenting petitions and joining the first British Women’s Suffrage Committee in 1877. Her sister was Millicent Garrett Fawcett and her daughter Louisa was also a suffragette.

The choice was made to honour Garrett Anderson, a largely unknown figure in British history, for her contribution to the medical profession and society as a whole through her boldness, bravery and willingness to push and break boundaries, which is recognised in creating the new building as a collaborative meeting space and hub for new tenants looking to aspire to something new as Garrett Anderson did.
