The Iversen Building
On Wednesday, the 27th of September, The Oxford Science Park was delighted to host the opening of the latest and hugely exciting addition to its portfolio: the Iversen Building. This new 88,000 sq ft NIA lab-ready facility expands the Park's total area by almost 20% and significantly increases its capacity for high-quality laboratories. The Iversen Building is the largest and most advanced spec-built commercial science building in Oxfordshire to date, with the capability to support the rapidly-growing emerging life science sector.
The Iversen Building provides a shell and core lab-ready space with infrastructure and services in place, ready for customization to meet the specific design requirements of life science tenants.
The Oxford Science Park would like to thank to Dinah Rose KC, the President of Magdalen College, and Prof Irene Tracey, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford, for their kind words and recognition of the huge contribution to Oxford science of Prof Sue Iversen, former Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology and Fellow of Magdalen, after whom the building is named.
The Oxford Science Park would also like to extend its appreciation to all the guests who attended the event and had the opportunity to view the new building for the first time, as well as the contractors John Sisk & Son Ltd, the architects Perkins&Will, the MEP consultants Hoare Lea, the structural engineers CampbellReith, the cost consultants Core Five LLP, the project managers 3PM Project Management, the ecologists Phlorum, the planning consultants Savills, the legal advisors Knights Legal Network and all the other parties involved in the project: Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council, Thames Water, SSE plc, Network Rail, Environment Agency.
