Fairhursts Design Group behind biomed facility named Project Capella

Fairhursts Design Group has been given the green light for a £79m biomedical research facility at the University of Cambridge.

The six-storey, 18,000 sq m centre will be built next to the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute within the university’s biomedical campus.

The project aims to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and will include a variety of laboratory spaces alongside offices and meeting suites

Fairhursts director Mark Adey said: “The proposed building will provide a cutting edge facility appropriate for the complex research currently being carried out in isolated, outdated facilities across Cambridge.”

Work is due to complete in early 2018.

  • I was wondering how much was spent on producing that image ...
    3 pence?

    If you really can't be bothered to produce professional promotional material for your scheme, why bother with amateur crap like this?

    Looks like a project for a new geography department for Basildon Polytechnic, circa 1972.
