This project involved the major upgrade of an existing building to house new wet labs, organic and inorganic analytical laboratories, a PC2 microbiological lab, a material science lab, a remediation lab, x-ray diffraction lab, ESEM lab, cool rooms and a QC2 receiving store.

Due to constraints associated with the existing building, WGE implemented an innovative plant strategy to best make use of the limited available space while optimising performance to balance energy consumption and operational performance. This included maintaining required air changes, temperature and pressure control within the laboratories during all modes of operation.
