HOK to design medical centre behind British Library

  • Comment
HOK has landed a contract to design a medical research centre in King's Cross, London.

Backed by the UK Centre for Medical Research and Innovation, the centre will house 1,500 staff and will be situated on 1.5ha of land at Brill Place, behind the British Library (pictured).

The detailed design requirements of the facility are being discussed by a committee chaired by the Nobel Laureate Paul Nurse.

‘We want a building that will help our scientists work with experts from different disciplines, from centres of excellence across the country and the world, to make a tremendous difference to our understanding of human disease,' said Nurse.

Andrew Barraclough, a director at HOK, said: ‘Our goal is to create an intelligent and memorable building – one which works, and delivers the benefits of research and innovation to the patient.’

Subject to planning consent, the final building should be completed by 2014.
