Almost 2 years on from the ground-breaking ceremony in September 2019 when the construction first began, the IMS-Tetsuya Nakamura Building, which will house the new Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM), is nearing completion. Please continue to visit the IDRM website for monthly updates on the build progress.
You can experience a digital tour of the building progress, by viewing the drone footage captured by contractors McLaughlin & Harvey.
The building structure, Corten cladding (rusted steel façade) and glazing is complete. The construction team continue to fit-out the internal building.
On the ground floor, floor finishes have been installed to the laboratory areas, ceiling tile installations are nearing completion and the lab benches are now being delivered and installed.
To the upper floors, the mechanical and electrical installations are ongoing. McLaughlin and Harvey are working with the Oxford University Estates Services Mechanical and Electrical teams to ensure the highest quality installations.
The specialist scientific equipment deliveries and installations are being coordinated, and installations are expected to commence in early September.
External works are progressing with levels being formed and preparations for the hard and soft landscaping elements are underway. The final external finishes for the ancillary building are expected to be delivered and installed shortly.
