The first phase of this joint venture included the complete redevelopment of two existing buildings to house the University’s Schools of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Pharmacy and complement the existing facilities in the University’s Science Centre.
The Joseph Banks Laboratories (formerly known as Becor House) and Minster House were completed in September 2014 and officially opened by Vice-Chancellor Mary Stuart and Visiting Professor Chris Packham in April 2015.

Boole Technology Centre
The Boole Technology Centre represents a significant milestone for Phase 1 of LSIP.
The development is designed to house small and medium enterprises of 10 to 50 employees, along with small departments of larger firms. Find out more about the development here.
Created in conjunction with the City of Lincoln Council, the LSIP Masterplan outlines development plans for over six acres of land.
The image below highlights Phase 1 and Phase 2 for the Science Park. This includes the expansion of the Joseph Banks Laboratories and Minster House, along with the proposed Boole Technology Centre, which together make up Phase 1 of LSIP.
