The Maxwell Centre, Cambridge


The recently completed Maxwell Centre is situated on the West Cambridge site between the Physics of Medicine and William Gates Building, now housing the Department of Physics in a state-of-the-art venue that provides new post-graduate research laboratories, open plan researcher write-up space, administrative offices, a collaborative social hub, a business lounge, and a tea room. The building, named after the eminent physicist James Maxwell, accommodates 92 PhD students, 109 Post Doctorate researchers and 67 staff. The purpose of the Maxwell Centre is to allow scientists from the research and development industry to occupy laboratory and desk space alongside Cambridge-based study groups. It is hoped that this day-to-day liaison will lead to unique research opportunities and expose promising early career scientists to the challenges they are likely to face upon entering employment. The new build area is approximately 4930m2, combined with 530m2 of refurbished space in the adjacent Physics of Medicine building, to deliver a total Gross Internal Area of 5,460m2.
