Named for the discovery of Antarctica 200 years ago, The Discovery Building is a science and research facility, part of the modernization of the Rothera Research Station for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). Commissioned by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), this long-term programme will enable a world-leading capability to ensure that Britain remains at the forefront of climate, biodiversity and ocean research in the polar regions. The design vision is to update and restore infrastructure, and to consolidate a series of outdated structures into a new 50,000-square-foot facility to be completed in 2024.
