The new AHSB will provide modern Research and Diagnostic laboratory and support facilities for the Veterinary Sciences Division of AFBI.
Designed over three floors; the new building will be situated within a mature landscaped campus. With Sustainability at the core of the design philosophy, the building will provide a careful balance of fully Air-conditioned laboratory spaces and naturally ventilated ‘write-up’ and support spaces. The building will include a range of spaces for staff breakout and interaction including a cafe and library.
The entire project is being delivered to BIM maturity Level 2.
