A JIF funded project to completely upgrade 950 sq. metres of Laboratory facilities used by the University of Cambridge Virology and Medicine Departments on the 5th Floor of the main building at Addenbrookes Hospital.

The University Departments had to continue to operate throughout the refurbishment and therefore the works were divided into a number of phases to allow for decanting and relocation of Researchers to enable the whole area to be completed. The main Laboratories are ACDP Category 2, with one suite per Department at Category 3.

The Category 3 suite for Medicine was specifically designed to house a Class I and a Class II Microbiological safety cabinet. The existing Category 3 suite plant was refurbished/replaced to provide an upgraded facility.
