Repurposing science structures

Repurpose for Science: structures

Can your building structure stand up to the performance demands of a science facility? 

With the increasing popularity of flexible working, developers and commercial property owners are looking to maximise their real estate asset potential, to reoccupy and reimagine these spaces for the scientific research. 

Economic drivers for retrofitting existing buildings maybe apparent across building sectors, now environmental factors addressing climate change and embodied carbon targets are consolidating the case for re-use of existing assets.  

Repurposing an existing structure to accommodate scientific research often requires the existing property to perform beyond the original design intent. 

Arup’s structural and vibration specialist engineers draw from a breadth of experience in the commercial and science sector to understand the challenges and performance requirements in order to maximise the capability of existing buildings.
