Sir Robert McAlpine announced that Manchester’s world-class health innovation and precision medicine campus took a step forward as Citylabs 2.0 reached practical completion. Despite the added challenges caused by the pandemic, as main contractor we completed work on the 92,000 square feet development with minimal disruption. The campus will form part of a new national hub for precision medicine and data analytical businesses, accelerating innovation and translating brilliant research into new healthcare diagnostics and treatments.

The development is a joint venture between Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, the UK's largest NHS provider Trust, and Manchester Science Partnerships. It forms part of a £95m expansion to MFT’s Oxford Road hospital campus Citylabs 1.0, which is already home to a thriving cluster of diagnostics, medtech, digital health and genomics businesses.

The practical completion of Citylabs 2.0 represents another step forward for Manchester’s Oxford Road Corridor innovation district, one of the North of England’s most important commercial areas. Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Citylabs 2.0 will create and support up to 1,500 jobs adding almost GBP 150 million to Manchester’s economy over the next decade.

Global life sciences and diagnostics company QIAGEN will occupy the whole of Citylabs 2.0 for its Global Centre of Excellence for Precision Medicine.
