The Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine received an extensive upgrade of existing mechanical, electrical and plumbing services. The space also saw the fit out of new clinical research facilities, a specialist laboratory and open plan office space.

Directly below the floor we were adapting housed an operational laboratory, and it was important that disruption to staff working in this space was minimised.

The project

The project included the installation of bespoke open plan office space with lab benches, write up areas and meeting facilities. We installed clinical research laboratories and cold rooms, which include fume cupboards, equipment bays and specialist fixtures and fittings.

The floor is served by the Hospital’s base build engineering systems. We carried out an extensive upgrade and replacement to these services, including electrical and plumbing works, to meet the functional requirements of the updated facility.

A phased delivery plan allowed staff to continue working as normal on the floor below, while the refurbishment works were taking place.
