AstraZeneca – New PR&D – Macclesfield

AstraZeneca - New PR&D - MacclesfieldThis project is a 12,000m2 facility providing four floors of research laboratories and associated offices, write up areas, meeting rooms and interaction areas.

Each floor operates independently via a dedicated plantroom per floor. Both offices and research laboratories have prefabricated service supply modules.

The voids act as a supply air plenum to the open plan areas.

The meeting rooms were designed for prefabrication off site and are fully demountable for easy relocation.

A “No Ceiling” philosophy has been adopted to allow easy access for flexibility and maintenance.

The open plan laboratories accommodate 260 fume cupboards. A full height atrium fronts the office and serves to connect existing buildings on both sides providing a casual meeting space on the ground floor, a refreshment hub and direct access to a library and meeting rooms.
