Life Sciences Park, Malta

Life Sciences Park, Malta

The Government of Malta is funding a state-of-the-art life sciences centre, named the BioMalta campus, in San Gwann. The centre is being developed to foster the growth of the country's life sciences industry and is expected to create more than 500 jobs by 2019. The campus will include world class facilities such as laboratories, offices, lecture theatres, meeting rooms and a number of perfectly equipped shared facilities. Giving local and international organisations space to research, explore and create.


Brief

The BioMalta campus will initially consist of four buildings comprising of 10,000m² of laboratory space and 3,500m² of business incubation facilities. There will be 61 lab units, including 11 incubation units. The campus is proposed to include wet laboratories designed in accordance with the standards of BS/EN 12128:1998, which suggests the containment levels to be maintained in biotechnology laboratories.

The design of the labs will be modular, so that contracting companies can modify the space arrangement to suit their requirements. The containment level of the labs will be maintained by using ventilation and extraction systems with high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters.
