The office and laboratory building R.2. is the first new building to be realised for the Medical Faculty OWL on the Bielefeld University campus. The building will be situated at Morgenbreede adjacent to the Innovation Centre, and will have a usable floor area of around 3,900 square metres. The new building is being constructed by Bielefeld University in its capacity as building owner.
The building will have five floors, and will be divided into two parts, an office wing for around 120 employees and a laboratory wing housing 45 laboratories. It will be constructed using a modular design. In addition, R.2. will be equipped with a photovoltaic system and a green roof.
The building is part of the Campus South site concept that was unveiled at the end of 2019, which sees the new buildings of the Medical Faculty integrated into the Campus.
