A Great Gut Feeling as CBRE Cracks Quadram

23 February 2018

The Quadram Institute, a pioneering new food and health research and endoscopy centre based on the Norwich Research Park, has awarded CBRE a five year integrated facilities management contract.

The Quadram Institute will be a facility for research and training in food science and health which brings teams from Quadram Institute Bioscience, the University of East Anglia, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) together under one roof.

The building will be a hub for studies across four key themes: the gut and the microbiome; healthy ageing; food innovation; and food safety, as well as containing a new Regional Endoscopy Centre and Clinical Research Facility.



The contract terms will see CBRE providing a fully integrated service to the QI, including mechanical and electrical maintenance, fabric, cleaning, security, grounds and waste when the building opens its doors in early 2018.

CBRE was selected as the QI’s chosen partner on the basis of their extensive experience of operating within the life sciences and research sector.

David Mann, the Project Director at Quadram said: “CBRE demonstrated an understanding of the QI, its associated values, objectives and aspirations during the tender process. We are confident that they are the best partner to support the Institute in the pursuit of scientific and clinical excellence by providing the QI’s occupiers, visitors, patients and stakeholders with a world class environment.”
