Department of Infectious Disease (DoID), Imperial College London

South Kensington

Walter Lilly is appointed under a Design & Build contract to refurbish four floors of the Sir Alexander Fleming (SAF) building at Imperial College London’s South Kensington Campus.

Working within a live education campus environment, our scope of works will provide 3,000m2 of space in the SAF building to accommodate research laboratories and teams from the Department of Infectious Disease (DoID), who are moving from Imperial’s St Mary’s Medical School Building to their South Kensington Campus.

The refurbished area will allow three sections of the DoID team to move into the same space: Virology; Immunology of Infection; and Paediatric Infectious Disease. In total, approximately 120 staff, 30 PhD students and approximately 50 PGT / UG project students will be accommodated within the new space.

The new build will include office space and state of the art laboratories allowing safe handling of infectious pathogens at high containment (CL2 and CL3).

The College’s appointed design team, Saunders Boston Architects, Scotch Partners and Curtins have been novated over to us to complete the RIBA stage 5 design.
