Acting for the leading life science company, Abcam plc, APS are appointed as technical and financial advisors for the development of a new 100,000 sqft headquarters building on Cambridge Biomedical Campus.  The building will comprise 60,000 sqft of office and welfare facilities, and 40,000 sqft of bespoke laboratory facilities.

Having assisted with the negotiation of the Agreement for Lease, including the assessment of contractual obligations and agreement of specifications, we were closely involved in design development and procurement processes to ensure that Abcam will receive a first-class facility at a competitive cost.   

Construction started on 1st March 2017 and APS will be monitoring the delivery of the building and drawdown of payments throughout the construction period, until Practical Completion in October 2018.

“APS built trust and understanding between the members of the team.”

APS were appointed as technical consultants for Abcam in October 2015 and have played a central role in optimising the quality, cost & programme for Abcam’s new global head-quarters at The Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

Their experience, knowledge and drive for long term value has been appreciated not just by Abcam but by many others across the project team, and by being able to see the other party’s perspective with clarity and level headedness, APS built trust and understanding between the members of the team.
