Laboratory for Molecular Biology, Cambridge

Client: BAM Construction

Located adjacent to Addenbrooke's Hospital this 48,000m² flagship laboratory building was constructed to house some 400 scientists and 200 support staff, all employees of the Medical Research Council.

Crosscount are proud of their circa 2 year involvement with this project which is located just 20 miles North of our headquarters. At a peak we had some 25 staff working on this project, where we undertook the testing and commissioning, water treatment and chlorination, including the setting up of the pressure cascade regime between laboratories. In excess of 1,200 VAV boxes are installed in interstitial floors, along with what was at the time the largest ground source heat pump system ever installed in the UK.
