Heatherwick Studio proposes timber centrepiece for pharma campus in Surrey

The proposal involves the refurbishment of the existing Eli Lilly and Company campus in Surrey and the introduction of a three-storey timber structure at its heart.
It is being developed by Heatherwick Studio and Veretec to support UCB's plans to expand its research of immunology and neurology in the UK.
The 19-hectare campus, which was purchased from American pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly last year, will replace UCB's current UK headquarters in Slough.
