Extra-thick ceilings and floors, enough space for large apparatus and no daylight in the laboratories: the sensitive measuring equipment used by Bielefeld's Experimental Physics Department makes big demands on a building. From the first quarter of 2014 these demands will be met by a new replacement building on Morgenbreede. Its construction has been made necessary by the upcoming modernisation of the main university building. As reports have confirmed, some of the experimental physics will be unable to continue operating in the main building during that time, as the vibrations and noise occurring would significantly impair the scientific measurements.
The area next to the Behavioural Research building on Morgenbreede has been earmarked as the construction site. The jogging track has been partly rerouted to accommodate it. The new building has an approved main effective area of 1,293 m². Laboratories will cover 1,096 m² of that area. Associated offices will be housed in the adjoining Behavioural Research building.
The total cost of 12.2 million euros will be borne jointly by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW (BLB NRW) and the University. The final funding decision by the North Rhine-Westphalia state government is expected in autumn 2012.
