  • Description

    The Botnar Research Centre houses the Oxford University Institute of Musculoskeletal Sciences, and is situated in the grounds of the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. Construction of new £6m ‘Phase 2’ state-of-the-art research facilities makes the Oxford University research facility one of the largest musculoskeletal research centres in Europe. It can house up to 250 scientists, clinicians and support staff carrying out pioneering research into conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and cancer. The new construction doubled the centre’s size and the Botnar Research Centre now comprises 4,000m2 of research facilities including state-of-the-art laboratories, and flexible office accommodation.

    Avonline Flooring was appointed to complete the flooring over 3 floors covering 2,500m2 within the new buildings.
