Research and Development Center at Roche in Basel, Switzerland

F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. is investing in a new research and development center planned for completion in 2023 at its group headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. The research and development center will consist of four buildings with an underground parking lot as a foundation under buildings 4 to 7. Building 4 – the convention center – will hold auditoriums, while building 5 will provide office space. Buildings 6 and 7 (72m and 114m high respectively) will house flexible laboratory workstations. The entire complex will be connected at ground floor level by what is known as the Avenue, a covered link road between all the buildings.
