Contractor will fit-out major lab at the Halo building near King’s Cross

ISG has been awarded a £21m fit-out contract for a new state-of-the art laboratory in London.

The 133,000 sq ft facility in the ‘Halo’ building at One Mabledon Place in King’s Cross biosciences corridor, will include state-of-the-art pathology laboratories serving the London health community, as well as corporate offices.

The project from Health Services Laboratories (HSL) is a joint venture between The Doctors Laboratory (TDL), University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.

The development is to consolidate existing disparate pathology facilities from North Central London into what will become one of the largest pathology laboratories in Europe.

Paul Sharp, divisional director of ISG’s Engineering Services business, said: “This is a flagship project of national and international standing. From One Mabledon Place, HSL will deliver testing and host world-class research facilities, ensuring effective integration of advanced pathology with progressive approaches to clinical care.
