Agri-Informatics, Cranfield University
The new Agri-Informatics research building provides a permanent home for assets of national and international importance: the Land Information System (LandIS) on the soils of England and Wales, the National Soil Inventory (NSI), as well as ‘legacy’ data covering the globe in the World Soil Survey Archive and Catalogue (WoSSAC). These resources are unique; brought together for the first time, and supplemented with dedicated research facilities, Agri-Informatics now provides the opportunity to properly exploit these assets.
The new building is a two-storey stand-alone centre of excellence, providing approximately 500m2 of dedicated soil archive, map room, laboratories and collaborative space for research. It forms a key phase in the delivery of the University’s ongoing south-eastern campus expansion, and sits in a prime location on a new landscaped boulevard.
The completed project is the first of two phases of development, and a key aspect of the University’s brief to the design team was to ensure that the design anticipated and facilitated simple expansion in the future.
