Canary Wharf Group commissioned Bulb to design and deliver this superb R&D facility in Canary Wharf for their tenant, AviadoBio. The facility includes CL2 laboratories located within the west wing of the floor and exceptional office space within the east wing.

The two large research and production spaces feature functional laboratories such as tissue culture, PCR, Plasmid, and Cell Production for various activities and support rooms such as a dedicated cryogenics & freezer room, stores and glass wash. Services include pumped drainage into a vulcathene stack resistant to chemicals and specialized gases and mechanical ventilation for containment and comfort.

The office is characterised by its exposed ceiling services and brand colours, creating a vibrant and professional atmosphere.

The client team is extremely pleased with the finished facility.
