Architects Make will design a new agricultural campus for the University of Nottingham at Sutton Bonington.
The £5 million building is the first stage of a new masterplan commissioned by the university to improve facilities on the campus.
Make will design a new building for the School of Veterinary, Medical and Sciences together with the School of Biosciences, to house a mixture of laboratories and office space.
Work will begin in March on the planning application for the new 3,100sqm building.
The development is expected to take two years to complete.
The design team comprises Couch Perry Wilkes, Price and Myers, Sand Project Management and WSP.
