Exciting news! Construction began this month on what will be the UK’s largest straw bale building, which will utilize prefabricated construction and local straw from nearby farmland. The Sutton Bonington Biosciences Building at the University of Nottingham’s agriculture campus will bring a high-tech facility to the rural setting, combining the School of Biosciences and the School of Veterinary and Medical Sciences into one building.
