Go-ahead for £12m forensic science lab

21 Aug 13 Planning approval has been granted for a state-of-the-art forensic science laboratory in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.

The £12m capital investment will provide a building for DNA processing and evidence recovery at the current site of Forensic Science Northern Ireland (FSNI) at Seapark, Carrickfergus.

Environment minister Mark Durkan said: “This is a major economic boost for East Antrim. This facility will bring significant investment to the Carrickfergus area and construction jobs in the short term.”

A key feature of the new building will be the exacting standards of control of its internal ‘clean room’ environment. It will also be a highly energy-efficient building, generating more power than it consumes.
