Biosafety Laboratory for Nestlé in Switzerland
M+W Group has completed a mostadvanced, new research laboratory on the site of Nestlé’s Research and Development Center, in the Vers- Chez-Les-Blanc district of Lausanne, Switzerland.
After around 21 months’ design and construction the facilities were handed over to Nestlé on schedule by the general contractor M+W Process Industries in Allschwil/ Basel, Switzerland. Protection against harmful pathogens in food is to be carried out at the new laboratory across an area of around 1,200 sqm, including 200 sqm with the biology safety level 3. The new laboratory area extends over an entire floor of a Nestlé research building and has been completely revamped by M+W Group. The scope of the project included the design and construction of a separate biosafety level 3 (BSL 3) laboratory on the same floor with state-of-theart cleanroom technology, planning and installation of a separate ventilation system, together with modernization of the existing ventilation in the remaining laboratory.
