Manufacturing of vaccines for the COVID-19 pandemic

Vaccine Manufacturing Innovation Centre

ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

Of national importance for public health and future resilience, the Vaccine Manufacturing Innovation Centre (VMIC) was the UK’s first vaccine development and manufacturing centre. 

Located on the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, the centre is stablished as one of the leading science and innovation campuses in Europe. 

Project name

Vaccine Manufacturing Innovation Centre (VMIC)

 

Client

Harwell / VMIC

 

Location

Harwell, Oxfordshire

Services provided

  • Landscape architecture
  • Ecology  
  • Biodiversity Net Gain
  • Arboriculture 

Challenge

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic during the pre-planning stage necessitated a rapidly accelerated construction programme to bring the facility into full operation by early 2021; ahead of its original scheduled date of 2022. Mobilising quickly, and at short notice, required a change to the conventional approach.

 

A selection of syringes

Result

As an advanced centre of technology. the development extends beyond a straightforward build, requiring a complex fit-out.

Essential to the successful delivery of the VMIC was a united approach adopted by the whole project team. We collaborated with the contractor, design team and local authority to ensure timely decisions on critical path matters, avoiding negative impact on the programme whilst also developing the detailed design for the external works.

The construction progressed concurrently to the planning application and the project met its accelerated delivery date. 

 

In challenging times we are proud to use our expertise to support the fast tracked delivery of this nationally significant - and the UK’s first - vaccine development and manufacturing centre.
