The Challenge

The consortium completed the development as the first speculative phase of the biotechnology park in 2014. The building is the first phase of a development of over 200 acres, including the new Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and a range of key research institutions.

The Solution

  • The building set innovative standards around the provision of flexible shell space to suit both office and laboratory fit out.
  • It included a bioincubator providing small suites of office/laboratory, and shared conferencing and breakout areas. 
  • Rents achieved have been 30% above market levels, reflecting the quality of the building, the level of servicing, and the proximity to over 1,200 research staff.

The Results

The bioincubator is now fully let, and is seeing a regular turnover of small companies subsequently moving on to more permanent space.

The remainder of the building is now almost fully let to a range of office and laboratory users including GSK, Edinburgh Molecular Imaging, and MRCT.
