University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland is on the hunt for a design team for a 4,000m² business centre
The new building will feature accelerator units, incubator units, research and training facilities, tenant spaces and a café.
The structure is planned for the 60 hectare Cork Science and Innovation Park which is close to the UCC and Cork Institute of Technology campuses.
A UCC sports pitch currently occupies the building plot which is mostly flat and features mature trees and hedgerows.
The prestigious university (pictured) owns around 16.3 hectares of the science and innovation park and expects to deliver floor space of up to 107,350m² on the enormous plot to the west of the city.
A planning application for the design and build business centre project is expected by the end of this year.
A £13.4 million package of infrastructure works for the entire greenfield site is expected to complete in 2016.
The deadline for responses is 22 April.
