Rethinking the bio-science incubator

Thinkspace is an integrated education and research facility at Imperial College’s White City Campus. The building has been specially designed with inherent flexibility, which allows for new ways of working between students, researchers, and professionals of different disciplines. The boundaries between research space and offices are adjustable to suit market demands and future needs. At the same time, the spaces have also been programmed to be appropriate for a wide variety of tenants. Experts in typically ancillary businesses within the life-science industry such as accountancy, patents and law, can now work alongside scientists, technicians and academics.

Thinkspace was created as a highly-efficient low-carbon building with minimal energy demand and efficient usage. It has been awarded a BREEAM Excellent rating.
