Open plan accommodation with quick, easy and secure subdivision

The Roslin Innovation Centre offers flexible office and laboratory space with accommodation for over 285 laboratory workstations and office space for up to 380 scientists.

Each of our laboratory spaces have been carefully designed so that they can be subdivided into any configuration, whilst still maintaining shared access to the support areas and changing facilities. Like the laboratory space, the office areas can also be subdivided into any configuration, whilst maintaining access to break out areas and meeting rooms.

  • 41,000 sq. ft. of flexible lab (40%) and office (60%) space available for let
  • Open plan accommodation with quick, easy and secure subdivision
  • Equipped to high standard providing bright and airy workstations
  • Full height glazing with countryside views for 380 people (office) and 285 people (lab)
  • Common access to meeting rooms, kitchen areas, showers, changing facilities and toilets plus local amenities
  • Break-out space for collaborative working

The office area provides space for over 380 scientists and support staff. Full height glazing affords views out to the adjacent countryside. Bright and airy write up areas are conveniently located next to the laboratory accommodation. Break out areas and meeting rooms allow for closer collaborative working. 

The design and layout of these spaces allow for easy subdivision.

We provide 285 laboratory workstations and like our write up spaces, our labs can be easily subdivided and offer fully flexible accommodation. Again views out of the building are maximised through large areas of external glazing.

The labs, whether left as open plan or subdivided, provide access to the shared support areas, such as tissue culture rooms, cold rooms, dark rooms and changing facilities.
