Cawthron Institute’s Newest Building Officially Opened
We are extremely proud of the construction of the Cawthron Institute’s ‘EnviroTech Wing’, which was officially opened today. The Cawthron is New Zealand’s largest independent research institution, and the new wing was the most significant laboratory upgrade the Institute has had on its Nelson campus in 40 years.
The state-of-the-art build took our team 12-months to complete. Housing marine, freshwater, molecular, biosecurity and ecotoxicology experts, it includes specialist laboratories, offices, meeting rooms and staff facilities. The building is also the new home of Cawthron’s internationally-significant living collection of microalgae cultures and includes modern containment facilities for marine biosecurity research.
The Cawthron says these new laboratories will enable new levels of science, expansion of the institute’s environmental research and services, and provide its clients and research partners with the world-class science they demand. We love that we have helped the institute take this crucial step forward.
