Quintiles, a global contract research organization (CRO), announced that it is relocating its European headquarters to within 30 minutes of Heathrow Airport at Green Park, Reading , England, overlooking the M4 motorway.
The five story, 120,000-square-foot building is equipped with advanced technology to allow Quintiles employees to work seamlessly with colleagues around the globe.
This investment by Quintiles follows the opening of its state of the art laboratory and office facility in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2009 and the expansion of its phase I facility in London, completed in March 2010. Quintiles employs more than 2000 people in the United Kingdom.
It is anticipated that the building will be occupied during late 2011.
