Construction has commenced on three new, state-of-the-art laboratory and office buildings at The Oxford Science Park (TOSP), a premier location for science and technology companies in Europe.

The Daubeny Project, a 450,000 sq ft commercial life science development, is expected to be completed in 2026. It will provide substantial expansion space for the Park’s current occupiers and attract new companies from the global life sciences sector.

Each building will feature advanced lab infrastructure to support cutting-edge research, offering flexibility with the capacity for up to 70% wet or dry labs on every floor.

The design includes outstanding natural light, spacious receptions, and ground-level lifestyle spaces with generous atriums, colonnades, and landscaping to foster innovation, collaboration, and employee wellbeing.

The landscaped grounds aim to enhance biodiversity and integrate seamlessly with the Park’s existing mature environmental landscape. The development targets an Excellent rating under BREEAM, the construction industry’s sustainability standard.

Energy efficiency and carbon reduction will be supported by air source heat pumps, advanced ventilation systems, and state-of-the-art façade design. The buildings will utilise 100% renewable energy sources. The development also includes ample undercroft parking with provision for 25% EV charging and 537 cycle spaces.

Rory Maw, CEO of The Oxford Science Park, said: “The Daubeny Project will provide much needed, high quality lab space for companies delivering scientific and technological advancement in the UK, and we are delighted that construction has started. Having recently completed the development of The Iversen Building, and with construction of The Ellison Institute underway, The Oxford Science Park is confirming its status as one of Europe’s leading destinations for science and innovation.”
