The Project

Designed over three floors of accommodation, surrounding a central courtyard, the building provides strictly controlled specialist laboratory facilities with naturally ventilated offices and staff areas.

Services & Expertise

In all areas, the layouts, construction, finishes and furniture details were subject to rigorous technical review against NHS Health Technical Memoranda. Attention to detail was meticulous with ‘mock ups’ being constructed both on and off site for review and approval by the end users and external regulatory authorities. Construction complexities included the construction of specialist aseptic suites and category 3 laboratories. The project was completed 12 weeks ahead of schedule.

The project was firmly established as an exemplar model to the PFI route of procurement within the healthcare sector and no doubt formed a benchmark for future developments.
