By providing appropriate environments for the Science and Research sector, our work facilitates those endeavouring to further our understanding of the world.
Science and Research
Our experience in this sector includes work for universities, pharmaceutical companies, developers, and research and manufacturing clients. Our projects range from bespoke CL2 & CL3 suites to GMP and ISO Graded facilities.
Our recent works at the Chemistry Department at the University of Southampton transformed a tired 1960’s brutalist building into a cutting-edge research facility. The project included an upgrade of the entire façade to improve the environmental performance of the laboratories and the science taking place within. The installation of 66 No. VAV fume cupboards and an innovative fume extract wind responsive system made this an incredibly ambitious project completed in a live laboratory environment.
Featured science and Research work
Health Sciences Building, University of Southampton
QODA have been appointed to complete the design of the engineering services for the refurbishment of the University of Southampton Health Sciences Building. This will include the internal refurbishment of a four-storey University building to accommodate the relocation of the School of Health Sciences. This project has involved the design of above and below ground drainage, air conditioning, controls, chilled water, domestic hot and cold water, gas, heating, medical gases, and ventilation systems. The ten existing ventilation systems have been modified and the project includes two new AHUs, a new chiller, and condensers to provide heating and cooling via DX coils to all ventilation plant.
