Delivering biomedical research space in Edinburgh
- The Institute of Regeneration and Repair (IRR) project is one of the first buildings to be delivered on the Edinburgh BioQuarter Masterplan area, a key regional economic growth location.
- Requiring the expansion of a building currently under construction, the development will provide additional biomedical research space for future occupiers.
- Our Planning team worked with the University of Edinburgh to finalise the design of the IRR expansion project, conduct pre-application engagement with the City of Edinburgh Council planning team, project manage the submission and monitor the planning application up to determination. We also assisted with discharge of planning conditions.
- The project required careful consideration of future infrastructure to be delivered at Edinburgh BioQuarter, mindful of the key role it will play in regional economic growth.
- Planning permission has been achieved for the IRR expansion project - a five storey 6,500 sq m building, constructed as part of the ongoing development of the £36m IRR.
- The project will bring forward an early phase of the 167 acre Edinburgh BioQuarter Masterplan.
- It enables the delivery of occupational space for the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health (CRH), Infection Medicine (IM) research and Translational Health Technologies (THT).
- Working with University of Edinburgh and City of Edinburgh Council allowed for the resolution of safeguarding requirements for the delivery of future infrastructure at Edinburgh BioQuarter.
