Design.
The new Biomedical Innovation Hub is designed as a sustainably developed, energy efficient landmark laboratory arranged over two floors providing serviced and managed core laboratory and innovation office space forf or growing biomedical businesses.
Accommodation:
The building will comprise a mix of Biocontainment Level 2 laboratory and office space. It should be designed for maximum useable space within the building envelope. It will be divided into two principal facilities:
— A fully fitted out 24/7 serviced and managed core facility on the ground floor to attract microbusinesses comprised of a laboratory suite for analysis and sample preparation with associated open plan hot desk office space adjacent to the core lab. Protection of intellectual property in this area is not considered to be a concern to the occupants,
— An entire floor of shell space for expansion with infrastructure configured to allow generic flexible and adaptable modules of an appropriate size to accommodate 4-6 researchers, or multiples thereof. These modules would be fitted out by the occupier to suit their specific requirements. In the initial configuration the majority of the laboratories should be in the range of 500 to 630 sq ft, which would be composed of laboratory and write up space in proportions to be fitted out by the occupiers to suit their requirements. Some cellular offices are to be provided but under-utilised existing office space in the IRD is, for the most part, to be exploited instead. The accommodation should encourage interaction between different user groups.
