AstraZeneca, a major player in biomedical research and development, looked to relocate its corporate headquarters to a 60,000 sq metre campus in Cambridge, famed for its world-class university and research organisations. Seeking access to the country’s top academic institutes and hospitals, AstraZeneca aspired to create a leading science and research cluster powered by an incredibly energy efficient lighting system.

The Innovation 
Working in association with international ceiling specialist SAS, we devised a bespoke solution incorporating the discrete look of our SLIMLUX range. A unique ceiling grid lay-out allowed for fluid integration of up and down lighting, partitioning and the attachment of laboratory equipment. Our company provided the pharma giant with complete flexibility and the ability to seamlessly adjust these three key features throughout its new global HQ.

The Result 
An unobtrusive, modern lighting solution is now installed in the ambitious Cambridge campus, illuminating its corridors and laboratories efficiently. Designed with the comfort of occupants in mind, the bespoke ceiling and lighting system will light the way forward for some of the world’s eminent biomedical researchers and academics. Astra Zeneca are a world leader in the research and development of treatments for conditions such as Cancer, Leukaemia and of course more recently, working with Oxford University, have developed a vaccine for COVID 19.
