This iconic new project will create a new research laboratory building at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. The site is prominently located on the east side of the hospital campus overlooking the grounds of Fettes College, and with stunning views to the Edinburgh skyline. The new building links three existing Medical Research Council, University and Cancer Research laboratory buildings to form a new world class research institute. The project includes 2000sq.m of gross additional floor space providing dry-lab computational research space as well as seminar/lecture facilities and cafe. The building is designed to provide a link structure connecting all three existing buildings, with a central atrium space as well as a new iconic frontage as seen from the east side of the hospital site.
