Update on the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry

December 16th, 2014

Some of you may be aware that there has been some activity taking place on the site of the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry at the Jubilee Campus. Our contractor, Morgan Sindall, has been working at the site for a couple of weeks now, clearing the fire debris in preparation for the start of building works.

The fire investigation work by the emergency services is now concluded and has not identified any wrongdoing or arson associated with the fire.

We are currently planning the rebuild activity and we will be able to further update you of dates and timescales in the New Year once the site has been fully cleared. We are hopeful however that the delay to the project will be no more than 12 months in total, although this is still to be confirmed.

We want to let staff know that our rebuild planning is based on the same design principles using the same team of consultants and main contractor as before. It is still our commitment to deliver a carbon neutral chemistry laboratory that defines building methods and operating protocols for a more sustainable future.
