The project is an extension to the existing Grata Park campus and has a high level of sustainable and energy targets for the complex. The development will provide flexible R&D research space across 3 buildings designed supported by new infrastructure, an amenity centre providing high end bike storage and shower facilities, and an adjacent car park. The project is reviewing the carbon impact of both the embodied carbon and operation carbon.
Scotch have taken the MEP design to RIBA Stage 3, enhanced in certain areas, as well as the sustainability, energy and acoustic consultancy duties. Site infrastructure will be extended to serve the new development.
The project has been procured on a Design and Build contract, with Scotch being retained by the client to undertake a monitoring role through Stage 4 and construction.
The building has been designed to achieve BioMed’s ESG performance criteria, based on low carbon guidelines, with the engineering services considering the impact of both the embodied and operational carbon
