The North West Cambridge Development (NWCD) project is a mixed use development on a 150 hectare site that combines residential housing, academic and research facilities, infrastructure and public amenities, including the Storey’s Field Centre and Eddington Nursery.

This award winning ‘Landmark’ building has been designed to deliver the University’s aspiration for a high calibre building.

Designed to cater for arts related activities, the community centre consists of a 180 person capacity main hall with a sprung dance floor and balcony, a smaller hall with sprung dance floor accommodating 50 people which opens onto a courtyard garden, and a 20 person multi-purpose room.

These rooms are supported by a foyer, with a kitchen and ancillary service rooms, to include offices, storage and bathroom facilities.
