University College London is planning to construct a £300 million facility to house the UCL Queen Square Institute, the UK Dementia Research Institute, and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. The collaborative research facility will bring together 500 clinicians and investigators from different disciplines to tackle global challenges for neurodegenerative diseases. Featuring open labs to promote interaction, the reconfigurable facility will accommodate changing programs with flexible floor plans and building systems. The laboratories, technical spaces, write-up areas, and collaboration spaces will be arranged around a central shared social landing, and on-floor service desks will promote a communal sharing culture to maximize space utilization. The project team includes design architect Hawkins/Brown, project and cost manager Arcadis, and engineering consultants Ramboll and Hoare Lea. The general contractor for the first phase of construction is ISG. Ground will be broken on the project in early 2020 with completion expected in late 2023.
