Project details

Highly sustainable new building comprising bio-science research laboratories.

The building is a ‘living laboratory’ for the testing of environmental equipment and sustainable solutions, and demonstrates this through the activities within and the way in which it is constructed and designed.

The landmark facility is designed to facilitate inter-disciplinary working and it has developed a hierarchy of write-up and research spaces from shared, cellular, quiet spaces to open plan areas.

The ESI has been designed to the highest standards of environmental performance through design, construction and occupation.
