Edinburgh BioQuarter

Edinburgh BioQuarter selected Flexiform to complete their large breakout area in their main offices in conjunction with Michael Laird Architects. Edinburgh BioQuarter is an academic medical centre that combines outstanding biomedical research from the University of Edinburgh with the clinical expertise of NHS Lothian.

Within the Edinburgh BioQuarter there was a requirement to fill breakout areas with a range of meeting seating and sofas, along with the incubation units for each company to use. The incubation units are of various sizes and needed desking with cable management, a wide range of storage units and meeting tables and chairs.
