ChELSI, University of Sheffield
The ChELSI project is a centre of research excellence founded on cooperation between chemical engineers and biologists and focused on medical research.
In recognition of the university’s success in the bio-science field, a £4.3m EPSRC grant was awarded in 2006 to allow the University to develop a brand-new centre to take their work to a new level and to engage with colleagues throughout the country.

The vision for the project was to create ideal conditions for a new type of world-class research leading to biomedical breakthroughs in regenerative medicine, therapies and disease treatments. We realised this vision by overcoming complex site constraints, and working with an existing occupied building to produce a design with a heart, that is brightly lit, vibrant with colour and vitality and flexible in its layout and use. The challenge for us was to maximise the potential for expression of the building within the limited scope of the available external elevation. Responding to the use of the new facility, we even incorporated the genetic sequence charts for DNA into its designs.
