Four UK firms appointed to £682m medical research programme

  • Comment

Four UK architects’ firms have been appointed to the £682 million Medical Research Council (MRC) procurement framework, which will see a series of laboratories and specialist research facilities built throughout the country

The firms are: Nightingale Associates, The Brunton Boobyer Partnership, The Austin Company and Boswell Mitchell & Johnson. Each firm will hope to procure specialist work on projects for the four-year framework, ranging in value from £100,000 to £15 million.

The appointment follows the Government’s recent announcement that funding for health research will rise to £1.7 billion per year by 2010-2011. Of this, the MRC will receive £682 million from the Departure of Innovation, Universities and Skills.

‘Over the next four years when opportunities arise, they will be calling on our services to build laboratories and research facilities,’ said Prakash Davda, managing director, The Austin Company. ‘The agreement only started on 1 April so it is still early days yet.’
