such as HVAC, Alarms, Electrics, phone, implementation
of support & finishing equipment, etc.
Laboratory area: 325m2
Technical area: 400m2

All laboratories and lab support rooms will
be included into one BL2 laboratory suite. Additional
office space will be available for 3 junior
scientists and 20 lab technicians in 5 offices

The creation of laboratories on the site
was aimed to fulfill an internal need within
the GlaxoSmithKline Group to create space for
the development and testing of new products.
RX132 is a fast track project aiming to provide
self-sustainable laboratory facilities for part
of Clinical Immunology.
The laboratories needed are 4 BL2+ labs for
bacterial growth and testing and one BL2 lab
for cell culture activities. The Lab support
