Walter Lilly to deliver project for the Department of Infectious Disease at Imperial College London

Walter Lilly’s Science & Higher Education division will be returning to Imperial College London, following the recent Design & Build appointment to refurbish four floors of the Sir Alexander Fleming (SAF) building.

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.

Our Science & Higher Education Divisional Director, Phil Lavelle said “We are thrilled to be returning to Imperial’s South Kensington Campus. Walter Lilly’s first ever project here was back in 2003 and we are excited to be working alongside the Client and Design Team to deliver this new innovative research facility for DoID.”
