Work recommences on Nottingham’s ‘green lab’


February 11th, 2015

Following the fire at the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry in September, we are pleased to say that our contractors have now restarted work on the site.

The rebuilding work is based on the same design principles as before and aesthetically, the laboratory will be no different from the original design.

It is our continuing commitment to deliver a carbon neutral laboratory that defines building methods and operating protocols for a more sustainable future. By using the same team to do this, we will be able to deliver the project in the shortest time and to the highest specification.

Following the publication of the report by Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service last month, we were extremely satisfied with the findings and observations surrounding the cause of the fire. The report went into detail as to how our contractor, Morgan Sindall, followed all the guidelines and health and safety requirements during the build and we are confident this will continue as we progress with the rebuild.

We are now looking to the future and are committed to proceeding with our vision of building the world’s first truly green lab.

The anticipated completion date for the building will be summer 2016.
