TOPPING OUT CEREMONY FOR ASTRAZENECA’S NEW GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS

CAMBRIDGE, UK, 25 April 2017 – AstraZeneca today marked a milestone with the topping out of its new strategic research & development centre and global corporate headquarters at the heart of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC). The event represents the completion of the building’s concrete frame, as the focus of construction work now turns to installing the roof, external glass cladding and starting the internal fit out.

 

The open architecture reflects AstraZeneca’s collaborative approach to research. Visible laboratories and transparent glass walls will enable new ways of working across disciplines and with external partners, whilst a central courtyard, accessible to the public, will put science on full display. Occupation of the site will begin in stages in 2018.
