The first shovel of soil was turned for Uppsala Business Park's new innovative lab environments – Research Hub
The Research Hub is a laboratory-premises concept aimed at small and medium-sized research companies. In terms of size and function the concept is highly flexible, and it can quickly be adapted to specific requirements. The goal is flexible solutions whereby companies can grow with the Research Hub and focus on their core business. The aim is for it to be easy to switch to both larger and smaller premises, but also to premises with another function, as changing requirements dictate.
"We’re excited to be involved in this day, and look forward to the continued collaboration with Klöven towards realisation of a flexible laboratory that can form a basis for future laboratory buildings in the park," says Vendela Martinac, associate partner at C.F. Møller Architects.
Uppsala Business Park will offer everything from individual rooms to large premises featuring offices and laboratories measuring 3,500 square metres. A total new area of 350,000 square metres is being created here. As well as a unique laboratory environment you will also gain access to the service offering available within Uppsala Business Park, e.g. reception, conference facility, restaurants and the Uppsala Business Park (UBP) Community.
"With today’s first shovel of soil, Uppsala Business Park is taking its first step from successful business park to vibrant and accessible urban district for innovation and growth. We at Klövern are happy and excited to be contributing to the development of one of Europe's most important life-science hubs," says Peeter Kinnunen, Acting CEO, Klövern.
