Oxford BioMedica Planning Submitted

The planning application has been submitted for the extension and refurbishment of Oxford BioMedica's (OXB) manufacturing facility in Cowley, Oxford. After OXB secured an Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI) grant, Abell Nepp was appointed in April 2014 as the architect for the expansion and reorganisation of the site.

The proposal increases the manufacturing capacity of OXB's existing facility, together with infrastructure improvements and modernisation, but it also provides additional newly constructed clean rooms to accommodate future larger-scale/commercial manufacturing processes.

Subject to planning, construction is expected to start early in 2015.
