The Heartspace Project is the creation of a quadruple height atrium between the Grade II listed Sir Frederick Mappin Building and the 1885 Central Wing housing new laboratories, offices and social space and the complete refurbishment of both buildings.

The atrium will be housed under an impressive curved glass roof that will link the two buildings. An alternative entrance to both the Mappin and Central Block buildings will be created from Portobello Street. The project is designed to aid communication and collaboration.

Only those that have pre-booked will be allowed on site. Those arriving at a different time to their booking may be refused admission.  Over 10's only. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult over 18.  Appropriate clothing must be worn- please ask if you are unsure.  We reserve the right to refuse admission

Refurbishment works, preparation for the new glass roof and installation of structural steel.
