Cambridge Biomedical


for Liberty Property Trust & Countryside Properties plc

An internationally renowned Biomedical Campus forming a cluster of high-end life science research and development facilities and contributing to the wider Addenbrooke’s Hospital campus.


What we did

  • Worked with the landowner and promoter to achieve outline planning consent for 215,000 sq m of floorspace to create world-class biomedical research and development facilities and additional clinical floorspace to enhance the long-established Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

  • Worked collaboratively with stakeholders and the Local Authorities to achieve a development that would fulfil the necessary research and development function, but in a way that fostered open working within a campus comprised of high quality architecture and public realm.



  • The development has been highly sought after by potential tenants and is to include bespoke buildings to provide for Papworth Hospital, AstraZeneca and the Medical Research Council.

  • The success has spearheaded the next phase of the Biomedical Campus to come forward which is for a further 75,000 sq m of floorspace which Bidwells has led through the planning system, achieving planning consent in December 2017. 

  • In parallel with this second phase, Bidwells assisted in the delivery of detailed consent for its first occupier, Abcam Plc.


290k sq m

of new floor space.
