Oxford Science Park Opens New Building
A Milestone in Oxford’s Scientific Advancement: The Iversen Building Opens at The Oxford Science Park
In a remarkable event held on Wednesday, September 27th 2023, The Oxford Science Park celebrated the grand opening of its latest and most exciting addition yet: the Iversen Building. This impressive new facility boasts a sprawling 88,000 square feet of net internal area (NIA) and represents a substantial expansion of the Park’s footprint, increasing its laboratory capacity by nearly 20%. The Iversen Building stands as Oxfordshire‘s largest and most advanced spec-built commercial science building, poised to bolster the rapidly burgeoning life science sector.
Designed to meet the exacting needs of life science tenants, the Iversen Building offers a shell and core lab-ready space, complete with pre-installed infrastructure and services. This turnkey approach allows for seamless customization, ensuring that each tenant can tailor the space to their specific research and development requirements.
The Oxford Science Park extends its gratitude to Dinah Rose KC, President of Magdalen College, and Prof Irene Tracey, Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford, for their heartfelt words of recognition. They paid tribute to the immense contributions of Prof Sue Iversen, former Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology and Fellow of Magdalen, in the field of Oxford science. It is in honour of Prof Iversen that this groundbreaking facility bears her name, a testament to her lasting impact on the world of science and innovation in Oxford.
