Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) has been awarded first prize in a competition to design a new facility hub and two laboratory buildings at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Biological Sciences. The commission, FCBS’ first in Scotland, will also include the modernization of an existing 10-story laboratory tower which was built in the 1960s at the University’s Kings Building Campus.

As FCBS’s project partner Sam Tyler mentioned, the commission is hoped to “deliver a transformative piece of architecture in the City of Edinburgh,” which supports collaborative and flexible working environments. 

The scheme, currently in its development phase, is tentatively planned for completion in 2019. It will include 4,300 square meters of newly constructed lab space, as well as a 2,000 square meter hub building comprised of meeting rooms, offices, support facilities, and a “large connecting atria space” the fosters cross disciplinary work with collaborating schools.
