Minutically carried out laboratory relocation with existing and new furnishing
UniQure, leader in the field of gene therapy, needed one multifunctional building due to the fragmentation of research and office spaces across various locations. After the new building, the former Royal Bank of Scotland in Amsterdam, was completely rebuilt, the laboratories of the two different locations also had to be moved to this new building within three weeks time. A major operation where uniQure asked INTOS, also the main building contractor, and the INTOS Green Lab service, for their help.
Together with Unica installation technology, responsible for all installations, INTOS has coordinated the entire laboratory relocation. At the two laboratory locations, the existing and varied interior has been inventoried, numbered and per part determined when what could be moved. In close cooperation with the mover and Unica, INTOS created a meticulous planning that made it clear to everyone what had to be done and when. Within this planning the disconnection and safe connection of various devices, including fume cupboards and biosafety cabinets, obviously had to be taken into account. Due to the size of the rehousing and the limited time available, INTOS worked outside the regular working days and times also during weekends and evenings. The moved laboratory interior has been complemented with new laboratory furniture from INTOS Lab solutions.
"The move has been very successful and has led to an optimally functioning lab for uniQure. An appropriate mix of existing lab interior components and equipment with new furniture has been created. This is a conscious and cost-efficient solution that fits well with the needs of uniQure," says Arjan Andriessen, project team leader INTOS.
