Isaac Newton Building

The University is investing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects by creating the Isaac Newton Building: our new home for Computer Science, EngineeringMathematics & Physics and the University’s growing partnership with Siemens.

The new building, which will be completed early in 2017, will be named after one of Lincolnshire’s greatest sons, Sir Isaac Newton PRS MP, who was born at Woolsthorpe Manor near Grantham.

Project details

Phase 1

The first phase of the Isaac Newton Building project is the extension of the existing Engineering Hub, which opened in 2011. The extension will support the growth of the award-winning partnership between the University and Siemens, as well as the addition of Electrical and Electronic Engineering to the School of Engineering’s portfolio.

Phase 2

The second phase will create world-class teaching and learning space for the University’s Schools of Computer Science and Mathematics & Physics. This phase will also include a 500-seat lecture theatre, enhancing the University’s ability to accommodate large-scale events, and a catering facility.


Construction phases

Construction of the Isaac Newton Building is taking place in two overlapping phases:

  • Phase 1, a new extension to the east end of the Engineering Hub. Construction started in April 2015 and the building is expected to open in April 2016.
  • Phase 2, a new building connected to the south side of the Engineering Hub. Construction is due to start in Summer 2015 and the building is expected to open in early 2017.

The existing Engineering Hub and the two new linked elements will collectively be named the Isaac Newton Building.
