The new facility is located next to the existing ESB I building, which was opened in March 2006. It will be situated to the west of the ESB I building and north-east of the biology building.
Construction of the new ESB II is scheduled to be completed by January 2019 with an estimated investment of $77m.
The new building will provide multi-disciplinary research facilities to the teams of faculty researchers and their students in diverse disciplines, including chemistry, physics and engineering. It will facilitate scientists from different disciplines to work together to solve problems.
