Edinburgh’s BioQuarter matures with latest addition
Michael Laird Architects have produced a planning application for the latest addition to Edinburgh’s BioQuarter life sciences campus.

MOB 2 will conform to an existing masterplan for the area in providing a mix of laboratory and office space in a prime central position overlooking a central landscaped avenue.

Offering 6,707sq/m of gross internal floor space with a secure loading bay to its south west corner the facility will offer an active frontage with ample opportunities sitting and mingling.

In their design statement the architects observed: “Glazed curtain walling, anodised metal, PPC metal and translucent Reglit glazing are the principal materials, brought together to provide a simple, elegant and timeless building that will weather well.

“The regular rhythm of the curtain walling continues through the solid elements of cladding to unify the façade.”

Utilities will be housed within an external annex clad in metal panels to match the main building.

Separate additions to the campus include a sub atomic research centre and a £2.25m public park.
A multi-storey car park serving the campus will be delivered under a separate contract

I assume any cutting edge innovation is being left to the scientists as the architects don't appear that interested?!
