New labs for Immunocore, Abingdon

Immunocore are world leaders in immune oncology and development of T Cell Receptors. The company has collaborated with Glaxo Smith Kline, Astra Zeneca and Lilly in the development of biological therapies for the treatment of cancer and other diseases.

In keeping with Immunocore`s blue chip status, the new labs will be state of the art. Although S+B could provide fit for purpose lower cost options, the client chose the Exemplaire C Frame System for its build quality and in particular it`s professional fully integrated design. This is a growing trend amongst blue chip organisations where the need to promote a positive image, attract and motivate the best staff and students through smart, modern, high quality lab interior design is becoming a part of the functional specification and employers requirements.

More and more, selection is being made on the basis of the merits of proprietary design and life cycle value for money rather than on a lowest first cost basis against an open specification procured through a traditional construction sub contract package. The outcome for all stake holders involved the process demonstrates much higher satisfaction levels and in particular for employers getting exactly what they want and what they thought they would be getting.
