Manchester University – National Graphene Institute


Project Name:
Manchester University – The National Graphene Institute (NGI)

Contract Particulars:
The National Graphene Institute (NGI) is a landmark building in every respect and will be dedicated to finding commercial uses for graphene, which was discovered by Manchester’s Nobel prize winning scientists Professors Andre Geim and Kostantin Novoselov. The material is 200 times stronger than steel and just one atom thick – making it the strongest, thinnest and most conductive material ever measured. Located at the main Manchester University campus the NGI will be housed within a compact 7,626 square metre five-storey building, with a 1,500 square metre research lab for graphene scientists to collaborate with their colleagues from industry and other UK universities.
