Designed for the University of Birmingham, this new build project retains physical links to the existing Medical School accommodation, providing six storeys of laboratory suites for biomedical research.

The accommodation, arranged around a ‘racetrack’ corridor, includes banks of Category 2 and 3 laboratories, offices, meeting rooms and write-up space against the external walls for maximum natural daylight. The flexible plan and services are designed to accommodate future flexibility. The building was completed in October 2003.

Richard led the project during construction as senior project architect while working at RMJM.
