BMC in Uppsala is being modernized

The Biomedical Center (BMC) will have improved study spaces, greener courtyards, more energy measures, more welcoming entrances and a new clinical training centre.

BMC, located in the southern parts of central Uppsala, was built in stages from the late 1960s until 1985. The building has since been fitted with several extensions and today consists of over 105,000 square meters, which predominantly contains laboratory and teaching premises with associated offices and student spaces. Around 1,500 employees and 4,500 students work here.

“Together with Uppsala University, we want to make sure that the physical environment will maintain high quality for many years, and that BMC continues to be an attractive campus. A large part of the work involves making the building even more energy efficient, something that is of utmost importance to us and our goal of becoming climate neutral,” says Ali Ranji, project director at Akademiska Hus.

The work to develop and modernize the BMC is ongoing and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
