Feasibility study resulting in a commission to design and document the strip out and fit-out of two floors of an existing office tower for Offices, Meeting Rooms and an Analysis Centre over 1,000m2, for 10 laboratory technicians to relocate and expand an existing animal fluid sample testing facility to a more central location.

?Turn around time
?Delivery of samples
Limited windows of opportunity to construct fit out impacted on design & documentation period. The fit-out was required to include fume cupboards, biosafety cabinets, snorkel hoods. Limited site access with extended approval delays for materials handling large items such as mechanical plant, roof steelwork, large lab instruments & joinery items. Key issues for the approval authority were environmental, relating to the fume cupboard discharge and hazardous materials.
