Hive was delighted to be tasked with undertaking the pre-acquisition technical due-diligence of existing office space at Granta Park Cambridge. This then lead into the design of the new protein engineering antibody alliance laboratory. The works involved transforming the existing office space into three new laboratories, office areas and ancillary spaces.

Following a detailed condition survey, we redesigned the existing services and supplemented these with additional equipment to accommodate the revised layout and new labs. Hive designed new lighting, ventilation including fume extraction, environmental controls – including differential pressure regimes for the labs – small power, data and cold room facilities. Medical gases and cylinder storage were provided via an external compound and were piped into the building and distributed to the labs.
