Providing an environment that facilitates ease of communication and a spirit of collaboration formed part of the philosophy for this project.  Interior spaces focus on space types and patterns, rather than rooms, helping to create more efficient work processes.  Administration support areas have been designed to link encouraging interaction and idea sharing between staff.  Additional facilities include biomedical research laboratories, dry labs, and specialist molecular biology laboratories.
