The seven acre site on Wood Lane will become a new technology campus for Imperial College London delivering research, commercial application, translation and collaboration with industry, side by side with postgraduate education. It will build on and further develop the College's existing strengths in engineering, the physical sciences and biomedicine and will become a second major campus for Imperial College London.

John Anderson, Imperial West Project Director, said the development will provide a wide range of opportunities right across the employment spectrum. "Jobs directly generated by Imperial College will include academic professionals from professors to research assistants, laboratory technicians, a range of administrative posts, cleaners, catering assistants, security officers and maintenance workers," he adds.
