System Store Solutions Provides Cutting Edge Storage for the Francis Crick Institute

System Store Solutions Provides Cutting Edge Storage for the Francis Crick Institute
19/06/2021

Founded by six of the UK’s most successful scientific and academic organisations, the Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying human health and illness. Working to understand why disease develops, the Crick aims to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, strokes, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases. A flagship for UK biomedical science, the new building located in London sits amid a unique cluster of scientific skill, leading hospitals and some of the world’s top universities. Once the largest single-building construction project in Europe, the one million square foot facility consists of 1500 rooms and four floors of laboratories.

The Project: Having conducted a rigorous tender process at the end of 2015, the Francis Crick Institute awarded System Store Solutions a multi-thousand pound contract in February 2016. Installation of our Fami products began in May and the £650 million facility was opened by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in November.

‘We chose System Store Solutions to be our storage racking provider after conducting an extremely rigorous tender exercise. The Francis Crick Institute, the largest biomedical research facility under one roof in Europe, has a diverse range of storage requirements. System Store Solutions were friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and responsive throughout the delivery of a very complex racking project.’ – Guy Hallifax, Project Engineer

Fulfilling a diverse range of needs and adhering to a detailed list of requirements including adaptability, chemical resistance and ease of cleaning, we provided complex storage solutions in 36 rooms, equipping key areas such as the Biological Research Facility, Tissue Culture Laboratories, and the Chemical & Radioactive Stores.
