With the new facility sections ready and waiting, and the foundations complete, we were anxious to see the building finally take shape on site. This building is an essential part of our strategy to drive down lead-times and meet the long-term growth in sample support requirements in the cryo-electron microscopy community. The sooner it's complete, the sooner we can triple our production space! When the delivery and installation week finally arrived, it was cold and snowy - but it takes more than a bit of white stuff to stop us! Cranes and delivery lorries began queuing up in the lane outside, while scaffolding went up on site, and before long it was time for the first section to be carefully placed. The rest quickly followed, each precisely positioned in it's specific, planned location. Once underway, the process went smoothly and steadily, and in less than a week the building shell was completed! Watch how it happened in the slideshow below - an amazingly fast and smooth process!
Once the building shell erection was completed, we could immediately start to fit out the inside of the building. Look out for our next blog to see around the inside of our new facility!
