At the top in Cambridge
by Chris Garner
3PM have recently celebrate the Topping Out of the Chemistry of Health facility for the University of Cambridge.
Supplementing the world leading research and academia undertaken within the Department of Chemistry, this 2,640m² specialist facility will enable expansion of the existing office and lab provision.
The building will house the Centre for Protein Misfolding Diseases, as well as being a core base for the ‘Chemistry of Health incubator’ comprising research scientists from industrial partners and start-ups occupying laboratory and desk space alongside academics.
Navigating the site constraints of a live environment in the early project stages included the relocation of critical liquid nitrogen facilities and the management of electrical transformer replacement works, alongside the complexity of constructing on a heavily restricted site within the busy inner-City locale.
The team have successfully managed these issues by way of a significant consultation process, careful planning and utilising the strong relationships within the Project Team.
In short, a job well done by all.
