Structural glazing JLP01_09_823116

Napp Laboratories, Milton Road, Cambridge Science Park, Milton, South Cambridgeshire. A view along an elevation at Napp Laboratories during construction, showing its sloping precast concrete columns and structural glazing.

Napp Laboratories was built by Laing Management Contracting for Napp Pharmaceutical Group, with work starting in October 1980. The building project included a combined pharmaceutical production building and warehouse, research and laboratory services, administration offices, restaurant and auditorium. The building, which was designed by Toronto-based Arthur Erickson Architects, consists of three buildings linked together to form one complex. Sitting 1200 mm above the surrounding land on a concrete podium, it also has an ornamental lake on the south side. It was constructed using 102 sloping precast concrete columns and solar reflective sloping double glazing known as structural glazing.

Coryton Refinery JLP01_09_802343

CORYTON OIL REFINERY, THURROCK, ESSEX. A portrait of a group of workmen employed on the IE&C extension contract at Coryton Oil Refinery. This image was published in the September 1980 edition of Laing's monthly newsletter, Team Spirit.
In November 1979, Laing Industrial Engineering and Construction Ltd (also referred to as the IE&C team) started work on an extension to Coryton Oil Refinery. The residual upgrading of the refinery was carried out by Pullman-Kellogg, with Laing as sub-contractors. A huge amount of pipework had to be prefabricated and installed as part of the construction. Pipework also had to be connected from the existing refinery to the extension, which was a Fluidised Catalytic Cracker (FCC) plant
