Capita Symonds shortlisted for Australian science scheme
Capita Symonds, in conjunction with Reid Campbell, has made the final shortlist of bids vying for the University of Sydney’s new Nanoscience facility.
Five teams have made it to the final list, which was chosen from a total of 84 entries from around the world.
Last year, the University of Sydney secured AU$40m (£26.1m) in funding to build the new Australian Institute for Nanoscience from a federal government education investment fund. The Institute will focus on research across three areas - communications, medical diagnostics and astronomy - united by a common disciplinary core of nanoscale science.
The Capital Symonds team led by Iain Martin also created the University of Bristol’s Nanoscience facility, which the company said has been hailed as the quietest building in the world, despite its city-centre location. The size of the materials involved in nanoscience mean that complete stillness is imperative.
