Relocation of Toxicology Research Facility

Relocation of Toxicology Research Facility

Confidential client

Confidential value

An opportunity arose for our client to relocate from an isolated site to a secure site already owned by the client. This required extensive feasibility studies to find the best solution for the layout, costs and to reduce risk.

The facility has several laboratories. The nature of the facility required a layout and operational regime that avoided crossover between research and manufacturing employees. To avoid employee crossover, separate office, preparation, changing and staff amenity accommodation was required.

Bowman Riley was appointed as design specialists to provide a team of architects, mechanical and electrical engineers and cost consultants to produce a detailed feasibility study for presentation to the client. Following approval the next phase is tender, then design and build construction.

The client was concerned about achieving Home Office approval due to the nature of the combined use of the building. Bowman Riley reviewed the scheme and produced a programme ensuring Home Office compliance against delivery (route plan). To further ease the clients concerns, we independently employed the services of a recently retired Home Office inspector, who is highly respected in the industry, to comment on the scheme prior to final presentation.
