Medical research centre for Queen’s University Belfast is completed

Turner & Townsend

Turner & Townsend’s involvement in delivery of the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast included several life-cycle costing studies and helping to adapt ‘Soft landings’ for the project. The overall aim is to help the university achieve its target of reducing CO2 emissions by 21% by 2020.

The new 4-storey building includes 7320 m2 of biomedical research laboratories, secondary laboratory space, offices and cold storage. It will provide accommodation for 330 members of staff who specialise in research into finding cures for chronic diseases.

The project was built over two years and is valued at £18.7 million. It was one of the first and largest schemes in Northern Ireland where BIM (building information modelling) was used.
