Architect RMJM is designing a £200m medical research laboratory in Cambridge, Building understands.

The scheme, for the Medical Research Council, will be housed at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge. The centre, which has yet to be submitted for planning permission, will be used as a laboratory of molecular biology.

It will form part of a redevelopment of the site. In 1999 the NHS trust unveiled a series of proposals to transform the hospital into a centre for treatment and research.

The Addenbrooke’s redevelopment also includes extension of the main hospital, a cancer centre, provision of additional research institutes and staff housing.

The development may also include a train station and link roads. RMJM declined to comment.

Llewelyn Davies Yeang has been appointed by the Carvill Group to masterplan a 15 acre waterfront site in the centre of Belfast. The site is opposite the city’s Waterfront Hall. The architect has worked continuously in Northern Ireland since the late nineties.
