Designing and constructing world-class labs with ISG

S-Lab Conference, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Cambridge, UK - ISG

ISG has spoken on how to design and build world-class research and development (R&D) facilities at this year’s S-Lab Conference, which took place at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK.

ISG’s head of technology for Technology Solutions, Paul Cook, said the future for world-class laboratories is about being smarter and more resilient.

“Core to this is building in real capacity for change and making technology central to design rather than just an add-on,” he said.

“Technology has already changed; so must the way we design, build and run buildings.”

ISG, who was a key sponsor of the one-day conference, hosted an exhibition stand and shared knowledge with over 200 key stakeholders across the science research industry, as well as universities and commercial and public sector environments.

ISG’s divisional director, Paul Sharp, spoke about how ISG transformed a 1960s office space in London into Europe’s largest pathology laboratory for Health Services Laboratories (HSL), as well as work at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, London, for Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult.

“Through our work for world-leaders in biomedical, genetics and chronic disease, as well as universities, we have gained considerable experience in designing and delivering world-class laboratories,” Paul Sharp said.

“As traditional R&D facilities struggle to keep pace with rapidly evolving systems, the event was a great opportunity to share our successes at HSL and the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult.”
