Manchester campus expands with more lab space

Posted on by in News

Work has begun on a new laboratory space building at Manchester Science Park, which is part of Europe’s largest clinical academic campus.

Known as the Greenheys building, the project will offer a range of specialist CL2 labs with supporting office space ranging in size from starting from 232m2 up to 2,043m2.

An array of advanced technical features will be on offer, including increased vibration resistance, piped gas distribution systems, enhanced cooling and ventilation systems, high-security access, and 100GB superfast connectivity.

The BREEAM ‘Excellent’ development is said to reflect client Bruntwood SciTech’s commitment to sustainability, with Greenheys set to become the first lab space in the UK to be 100% electric and net zero carbon in construction and operation.

Scheduled for completion in Summer 2026, Greenheys will span across six floors, with specialised laboratory spaces tailored for diagnostics, genomics, biotech and precision medicine businesses.

Sam Darby, Development Director, Bruntwood SciTech, said: “We are delighted to have main contractor Willmott Dixon on board for the Greenheys development. Their expertise aligns strongly with our vision for creating a facility that will serve as a catalyst for innovation in the life sciences sector, and become one of the most advanced and specialist life science spaces in the UK.

“With Willmott Dixon’s commitment to quality and sustainability, we are confident that together we will deliver a world-class facility that meets the needs of the scientific community and contributes positively to the Manchester region.”
