Developing a sense of inclusion through transparency

Our team were appointed by the University of Warwick to assist in the construction of the new Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (IBRB). The 7,000 square metre biomedical research facility has been constructed on the existing Gibbet Hill Campus and brings together up to 300 biomedical researchers from across the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School to fight human diseases.

To help deliver this world-class building, our team was tasked with providing geotechnical services as well as structural and civil engineering. The scheme begins the process of replacing the ageing research facilities on the campus and, provides a world-class environment in which to train future generations of biomedical researchers.

The five-storey building supports a central ‘lab village’ core with open plan write-up, office space, and collaboration zones located at the perimeter to activate the facade. The key to promoting collaboration is strong visual connections through the building between spaces. The IBRB features a 400-seat lecture theatre with a large public entrance space that responds to the steep topography of the site.

The building promotes a feeling of inclusivity through transparency and openness of this space for all building users, visitors, and the wider community.
