This is one of the largest clinical research and animal housing facilities in the Country. Since this is primarily a contract research facility catering to overseas clients, the facility needed to combine internationally acceptable design and safety standards with minimal project cost to ensure that the project remained viable. The design emphasis has been on space and light. The large, lobby provides for a visually impressive entrance and provides the visitor with a feeling of ample space. This central area opens out to the laboratories and working spaces. Work zones include multi-testing laboratories, contract research, chemistry, molecular research and radioactive laboratories, support office spaces, a library, training facilities and a food court. The animal house, one of the largest of its kind in India, is positioned as a standalone building with separate entry and exit zones.
