Excavations to prepare the basement of the completion of the Biochemistry building in the Science Area have reached their lowest point.

Biochem completion basement excavations completed

The event was commemorated by a very informal 'bottoming out' ceremony last week. The current project will complete the world-class new facilities for the Biochemistry department; its first phase was finished in 2008. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2020.

A more formal 'topping out' ceremony with departmental and University stakeholders will take place when the building's structure reaches its highest point.
