Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology
This will be an international centre of excellence for research, training and teaching, with particular emphasis on the treatment of rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Designed to be a proud symbol for the Kennedy Trust, the facility will be the new home for a number of research groups currently based in Oxford and London, combining state-of-the-art facilities with a stimulating environment that supports a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to research.
The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology is set within the context of a long-term vision for the overall campus, which includes the Old Road Campus Research Building, completed in 2007, and a new research facility for The Nuffield Department of Medicine.
Nuffield Department of Medicine
This new laboratory will be an integrated, multi-disciplinary research centre which links biological science with medical application. The Nuffield Department of Medicine runs one of the biggest externally-funded biomedical research programmes in the UK and is one of the largest centres for biomedical research in Europe, supporting investigator-led research covering many fields and clinical disciplines. The building has been designed to form the ‘head’ of the campus and create a strong presence for the department.
Our works included the design, supply and installation of drywall partitions, shaftwalls, wall linings, MF ceilings, SAS metal ceilings, firestopping, acoustic wall panels and external render systems. This project requires complete air tightness room to room so particular attention to sealing up has been made, this has been thoroughly checked through the Fireclad QA process.
