II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Executive summary.

The MRC London Institute of medical sciences (LMS) is currently located in various facilities on the Hammersmith Hospital Campus. Existing facilities are aged and not suitable to accommodate new and innovative technology and research methods.

The MRC is seeking to use the opportunity for a new build facility, which will cater for the Institute’s future needs, provide the infrastructure required to maintain and increase its scientific impact and establish a home for the Institute. It will also enhance MRC LMS’s strong partnerships with Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine, as well as with the Faculty of Engineering and natural sciences. This access to medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering affords the institute superb support for delivering on its multidisciplinary remit to strengthen the interface between clinical and basic science. This project is co-funded by MRC and Imperial College London.

Priorities for the Institute include the provision of a fit for purpose CBS facility which will meet LMS’s future needs, and a new in-vitro imaging centre, bringing together the Institute’s existing imaging equipment and, crucially, provide additional high-quality space for the incorporation of new state-of-the art imaging technologies such as cryo-EM.

The new building also is expected to consolidate LMS researchers, ideally within a single building, which will provide a more conducive environment for communication and collaboration across the institute. Provision within the new facility of additional space to relieve the current constrained conditions in LMS and to provide flexible collaborative space for interactions with partner organisations, including with Imperial College, are also important considerations.

MRC LMS is located adjacent to the Wolfson Educational Centre in Hammersmith Hospital Campus on the former Cyclotron building plot. This is situated in a ‘live’ hospital environment and surrounded by occupied buildings. These multiple stakeholders include Imperial College Healthcare Trust, Imperial College London, Ark Burlington Danes Academy, Linford Christie Sports Centre, local residents and other highways users.
