Newcastle University – ICM Immunology Labs
GSSArchitecture were appointed to lead a consultant design team to deliver the Institute of Cellular Medicine Inflammation and Immunology Research Laboratory.
The project involved a significant level of complex refurbishment and remodelling within a live medical building which, in part, is occupied by both the University and the NHS Trust. The development has provided a range of new, high-end, bio-containment laboratories, tissue culture rooms, write-up rooms and seminar spaces.
The new open plan laboratory is of the highest quality required to deliver outstanding research of the highest international quality. The new facility has brought together key researchers, previously working across the building and city, into a single laboratory. This is already allowing for new opportunities to share techniques and build stronger collaborations.
This scheme demonstrates GSSArchitecture’s capability of addressing significant programme challenges on projects with complex technical requirements, and their ability to deliver projects to extremely demanding timescales, as the project was designed and completed in a nine month period.
