Construction has started on a research and development centre at ARU Peterborough, which will form a second phase of the city’s developing new university.

The key milestone was marked with a visit from Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Dr Nik Johnson, Leader of Peterborough City Council Cllr Wayne Fitzgerald, ARU Peterborough Principal Professor Ross Renton, ARU Chief Operating Officer James Rolfe and Rebecca Stephens from the Combined Authority Business Board.

ARU Peterborough is a partnership between the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, Peterborough City Council and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

The £16.7m Manufacturing and Materials Research and Development Centre building will be part of the ARU Peterborough campus on the Embankment and will feature 2,800 sqm of flexible research space over three floors.

The centre is a joint venture between the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority and Peterborough-based business Photocentric. Paul Holt, Managing Director of Photocentric was also at the ARU Peterborough site to mark the start of works.
