Reinforcing our expertise, knowledge and portfolio of projects within the Life Science sector, Associate, Ross McWatt recently gave a talk and tour on rejuvenating Cambridge Science Park to Greater Cambridge and Oxford Local Authority Planning Officers. With a particular focus on facilitating the Life Sciences Sector and sustainability, the tour included our completed buildings Plot 22, Plot 26, Bio-Innovation Centre and Buildings 1- 21.
Focusing on innovations in design, the talk included the servicing of laboratory buildings; the ground breaking concept of sidesticial servicing (where buildings are serviced vertically through a space, rather than horizontally within the ceiling zone) and the associated impact on building and floor-to-floor heights*; sustainable travel modes into and around the park including the creation of the Transport Plaza, a new non-vehicular entry point into the park; parking facilities, including the beautifully landscaped bio hub podium which screens parking; sustainable research and development concepts; and the design and development the facades and colonnades in Buildings 1-21, which help to minimise solar impact.
