Consolidation of Laboratory Facilities – UK
This project involved consolidation of several laboratory sanitisation services on a large scale site to be in one centralised location. The accommodation was to include increased capacity for short and long term storage, the services of a new necropsy facility, central laundry and Autoclave.
Due to the large nature of the site, five options for this facility were possible. A detailed risk analysis was produced identifying all related risks from operational (including staff safety and welfare), to loss of lab allergen control.
The building is designed is to have the capability to be extended in the future with minimal disruption to the operations of the building.
Modular construction would enable the building to be almost entirely built off site to a high standard. This would be a quicker construction programme than a conventional build, enabling the facility to be operational earlier than expected.
