Client: Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University hospitals NHS Trust
The new build Life Sciences Accelerator project consists of laboratories, administrative space and communal areas.
Construction of the five-storey concrete framed facility will serve as office and laboratory space for the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Two of the floors will also be occupied by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in which high specification labs are required. The Accelerator building will also be home to SME organisations specialising in the life sciences sector and with larger scale industrial collaboration through pre-existing product development partnerships.
This Iconic new building will benefit from up-to-date facilities, including access to Category 3 laboratories and offices, as well as ultrafast internet connectivity and a direct link to a grid computing facility.
We were dedicated to maximising local labour opportunities on this project and exceeded our targets!
“The Accelerator will allow us to further boost Liverpool’s reputation as a world-renowned centre of expertise. The collaboration with the Royal and SMEs will benefit global health by taking research and innovation from the lab to where it is needed most and will encourage further investment in Liverpool."
