The Forum, a development led by Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH), will house a private hospital, education centre and a Crowne Plaza hotel with a variety of restaurant, banqueting and conferencing facilities. The 36,788 m2 ( 395,980 sq ft) Forum is being developed in collaboration with John Laing Investments with the funding for the £120 million infrastructure project arranged entirely by John Laing with no public capital spent on the project. The key elements of the Forum are:
Hotel and conference centre (14,724 m2) – a full service high quality hotel with 200 beds and 12 suites; a flexible events space capable of hosting conferences comprising three lecture theatres able to seat approximately 600, 250 and 180 delegates and with the flexibility for all three theatres to be combined into one large open space for 800 delegates.
Education centre (4,300 m2): to house: a) clinical skills laboratories; b) simulation facilities including cadaveric and robotic facilities; (c) seminar rooms; and d) a suite of video conferencing rooms.
