The provider of laboratory and research space is set to open sites in Basel and Schlieren.
At the end of 2021, Swiss Prime Site entered into a promising partnership with Superlab Suisse, an innovative provider of research and laboratory space. The company, which already operates a site in Lausanne, provides ready-to-use and fully equipped research and laboratory space («Lab as a Service»). The company also offers operational support and other important services.
Swiss Prime Site Immobilien and Superlab Suisse have plans to start developing locations in Basel and Schlieren with a total space of more than 10,000 m2 from 2022. Stücki Park in Basel already houses a laboratory building and a technology park that brings together various start-ups from the life sciences sector. Another cutting-edge building is set to go up in the next two years, featuring laboratory and research space from Superlab Suisse. The second site will be built in Schlieren, near Zurich. The city on the Limmat is home to the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and the University of Zurich (UZH), as well as the research centers of numerous national and international pharmaceutical companies. Demand for laboratory space is correspondingly high. In Schlieren, just outside Zurich, Swiss Prime Site Immobilien is planning a modern new construction project on the JED site. Research and laboratory space for start-ups, spin-offs and established companies will be created across two floors in collaboration with Superlab Suisse.
«We are delighted to be working with Swiss Prime Site on the two new locations in Basel and Zurich, Switzerland’s most important life sciences clusters. Due to the close proximity to the Wagi site in Schlieren and the Technologiepark Basel, customers can benefit from major synergy effects between these ecosystems», says Zhang Xi, CEO of Superlab.
