This project was a major new build biological research facility. A wide range of testing and operating facilities were provided, with a range of hygiene coating systems applied to meet stringent requirements, including some areas at the highest Micro-biological Containment Level, CL4. To meet the Containment Level specifications, many areas required the surface finish to be airtight, demanding the highest levels of materials and workmanship quality to ensure that surface finishes had no air-bubbles, holidays, cracks or other blemishes that may compromise the HSE requirements.
Cousins carried out all the painting and decorating for the project over a period of two years. Systems applied included:
A total of 50,000 sqm was coated.
Completion: Spring 2015
