The 3-storey building of 13 000 m2 will provide this global consumer health and hygiene with new R&D laboratories and testing chambers. The project includes a global healthcare technical centre of excellent and an energy centre. There will also be sensitive refurbishments to existing facilities

Adrian Gray, director of hurleypalmerflatt, said, ‘We will bring our expertise in sustainability to the project, providing a detailed analysis of the centre’s energy requirements and the preparation of a detailed energy strategy that is intended to minimise consumption. With the new energy centre, we will be exploring a wide range of energy-saving measures — such as options for utilising natural waste from the facility.’

The facility will have strong sustainability credentials, with opportunities to include CHP, PV, adiabatic cooling and LED lighting into the final designs. The scheme is currently at the concept-design stage.

The project will be submitted for planning approval in July 2015, with construction set to commence in the second quarter of 2016.
