The Mathematical Institute will move from three separate locations into a single dedicated facility, and will be one of the first buildings on the ROQ site.

It will provide workspace for a diverse community of more than 500 mathematical researchers and support staff, including faculty, research fellows and postgraduate students. It will also be a centre for the academic life of approximately 900 undergraduates.
The building will provide more than 300 offices in a range of sizes, identifiable space for graduate taught course students and 4th year undergraduate students working on projects, an extensive suite of teaching and seminar spaces as well as a range of meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a large departmental common room.
The project will incorporate Ground Source Heat Pumps which when complete will supply heat in winter and cool the building in the summer. This is achieved by submerging pipes deep into the ground that can transfer the temperature to the building by use of pumps.
The Institute building has been designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and is being constructed by Laing O'Rourke and is due to be occupied from September 2013. For the latest detail please see the Mathematical Institute's web pages
Construction work is taking place between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, but there will be some traffic entering the site earlier in the morning in order to avoid causing congestion during rush hour. From time to time there will also be work on Saturday mornings between 8am and 1pm.
