Building work due to start on Durham physics centre

Construction of a research centre for Durham university's Institute for Computational Cosmology and Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology will begin in June.

The £11.5 million Ogden Centre for Particle Physics is part-funded by a donation of £3.35m from the Ogden Trust, a charitable organisation that promotes the teaching and learning of physics and was established by the University of Durham alumnus Peter Ogden. The centre has also received £1.5m from the Wolfson Foundation, which supports excellence in science, medicine, education, the arts and the humanities. 

The project is due to be completed by August 2016, according to a University of Durham press release on 8 May. The announcement described the centre as a top priority for the university because of the “rapid growth and academic success” of the computational cosmology and particle physics phenomenology institutes.
