National Graphene Institute

The National Graphene Institute is almost complete.

The AV Group supplied 21 Open Space steel modular buildings which include the highest quality accommodation for contractors including a canteen, open plan offices,meeting rooms, disabled toilets and washroom facilities and rest areas. The installation features a viewing platform to enable visitors to see the progression of the development.

Now almost complete the five-floor, 7,600 sq m, glass-fronted NGI building on Booth Street East includes a large research lab and two cleanrooms, where experiments can be carried out without contamination.

The world-class research institute is being built to help develop the world’s thinnest and strongest material which is almost completely transparent and is an excellent conductor of electricity. Two University of Manchester academics, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, won the Nobel Prize for Physics for their research into graphene in 2010.
