Project Ghiberti Granta Park
Project Ghiberti is a next generation life science building to be developed on a parcel of land called Site 1 within Granta Park in Cambridge. Our client’s vision is to deliver a striking building at this prime location of Granta Park that will offer sustainable, efficient, and flexible laboratory and office space, providing innovative solutions that will ultimately stand the test of time in design and performance terms.
Site 1 is located at the entrance to the park along with an existing 1960s two storey laboratory facility called Franklin Building c 20,000 SF. The original project brief was for to accommodate 100,000 SF building on Site 1 and a new MSCP to replace the Franklin Building. Our proposal offers a 120,000 SF building along with the necessary MSCP and retains and recycles the Franklin building. The building’s rectilinear footprint is approximately 25,000 SF NIA.
