Babraham Institute, Cambridge
This state-of-the art laboratory building was built as part of a
£14million redevelopment project of the research institute. The four
storey building has a concrete frame with shear walls to provide a very
stiff building to suit the sensitive laboratory equipment.
The building was designed to give considerable flexibility in the use of
the space to allow for future research demands while aiming to achieving
low life-cycle costs. The entire third floor has specialist plant and
equipment to service the laboratories.
