Imperial College London, Department of Life Sciences - multiple waterpurification systems for undergraduate and postgraduate research

Scientific | Case Study

The Client

Imperial College London is one of the leading universities for Life Sciences in the UK. Located in the Sir Alexander Fleming Building, a showcase for life sciences and medical research in South Kensington and also the Sir Ernst Chain Building/Wolfson Laboratories on the main campus. Together these facilities deliver a blue print for excellence in the teaching and research of Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Cell and Molecular Biology.

The Client's Needs

The college needed to replace ageing laboratory water purification systems, from multiple suppliers, with a new range of advanced systems to meet the more demanding research applications of the 21st Century. The tender process identified a variety of purity requirements for the laboratories in the Sir Ernst Chain Building (where 15 systems would be installed) and the requirement for one new system in the Sir Alexander Fleming Building. The additional two units would be installed at the Silwood Park Campus in Ascot, which focuses on research and teaching in ecology, evolution and conservation.

The laboratories in the Sir Ernst Chain Building are spread over 8 floors with ultrapure Type I water systems required on 5 of those floors and pure water needed for more routine glassware washing on the ground floor. The quality and reliability of the pure water systems is very important to the college to ensure the efficacy of its academic work.
