Containment Level 3 Lab, Liverpool Royal Hospital

Liverpool Clinical Laboratories, a joint venture between Aintree University Hospital NHS Trust and The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust commissioned DAY Architectural to rationalise and refurbish the existing Laboratory space on several floors of the an existing building at the Royal Liverpool Hospital.


The requirement was to create a series of new labs including Diagnostic Virology, Amplification Lab, and a new CL3 lab. The CL3 lab has been designed to meet the stringent Home Office Anti-Terrorism requirements in security to prevent unauthorised access. The lab will meet all the HSE guidance and will be hermetically sealed and at negative pressure to prevent escape of any particles. DAY have utilised specialist wall and ceiling coatings to create an impervious surface to prevent the harbouring of particles or bacteria.
