CH2M will be responsible for the internal laboratory design while Jestico + Whiles will design the new laboratory structure.
The new laboratory on the University's West Cambridge site will provide a new home for the university's physics research.
Beverley Weston, Cambridge University's head of estate projects, said: "We are delighted to be working with this highly experienced and creative team to deliver one of the most prestigious and exciting projects undertaken by the university."
This is the latest in a series of collaborations between CH2M and Jestico + Whiles. These include design of the University of Southampton’s Mountbatten research complex, the University of Manchester National Graphene Institute, and the Australia Institute of Nanoscience at the University of Sydney.
CH2M vice president Tim Meier said: “This latest win reinforces CH2M’s growing recognition in architectural design for science and technology buildings. This is a specialised type of work requiring not just architectural excellence, but also the technical excellence needed to create a new generation of technology research facilities that are sustainable, affordable, and flexible.”
