The tour included an inspection of the new laboratory research building, sited in the historic Lee Maltings complex beside the River Lee. The new facility, designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects, was opened in 2009 and provides world-class laboratory and clean rooms for the Institute. A glazed atrium cleverly links an existing listed building with the new facilities, and provides a brightly-lit energy efficient research environment. This approach to energy management for the new facility was so successful, that when audited it showed a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions per researcher.
