In order to meet its strategic objective of increasing income from research and establishing itself as UK-leading in innovation and enterprise, the University of Leeds has developed a new dedicated Innovation and Enterprise Centre. Nexus is its business-facing front door. Instead of being a ‘university’ space it is a neutral professional place.  Bold in its design, Nexus does not impose itself on its surroundings and sits harmoniously within the university’s wider masterplan. Constructed using an in-situ concrete frame and glulam roof, it respects the topography of the site to deliver a sleek, contemporary design.
