Main contractor Morgan Sindall have recently completed the new £60m Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB) Building on the west side of Cambridge. The CEB is a landmark project for the University of Cambridge and will add further to its international reputation for learning and research in this field.
The project features a wide range of biological laboratories to Bio Safety Levels Two and Three, cleanrooms, sensitive laser, optics and imaging laboratories, a Magnetic Resonance Research Centre, materials and processes laboratories and an undergraduate teaching laboratory.
The design utilises over 2,500metres of Cableflow CL3+ Laboratory bench and dado trunking systems designed specifically for use in these relentless environments.
The CEB will be used to promote collaboration and interdisciplinary working among research groups, researchers and students. The new building is the first to facilitate collaboration between undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers through the whole cycle of scientific investigation.
Cableflow worked extensively with the laboratory furniture manufacturer to integrate the two systems across the project.
