Quietest Building

A university building that opened in Bristol yesterday has been hailed as the quietest in the world by scientists.

The Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information at Bristol University – an £11 million Willmott Dixon project – features laboratories where vibration and acoustic noise levels are among the lowest ever achieved.

The centre will offer opportunities for the development of future computing, communications and health technologies, as well as advanced materials such as those used in the aerospace industry.

Capita Symonds provided project management services on the project, which was designed by the company’s architecture division, Capita Architecture.

A Capita spokesman said: “The building is beautiful and complex, amalgamating both art and science in a harmonious composition. It is technically complex and has exceeded expectations by becoming ‘the quietest building in the world’ in terms of vibration performance.”
