6,600 sq m facilities for Danish Meat Research Institute to open today in Taastrup 

Today, 23 September H.M. the Queen of Denmark opens the newly built research facilities for the Danish Meat Research Institute at the Danish Technological Institute in Taastrup - some of the world’s most advanced in food production. The Danish Meat Research Institute (DMRI) develops solutions for the international meat industry and provide consultancy both nationally and internationally.

“The building cements our position as the world's largest and leading international centre of excellence in research and innovation in meat and meat products, and with the new facilities, our research and development can step up even more towards new technologies, new products and new markets,” says CEO Søren Stjernqvist, Danish Technological Institute.

The 6,600 sq m building houses about 120 DMRI employees, and includes a research abattoir complete with cooking and smoking, ultra-modern microbiological and chemical laboratories (including laboratory facilities for the study of the occurrence of pathogenic bacteria in meat production), integrated robotic workshops, as well as offices and meeting facilities.

The new building is based on the same simple design idiom as the existing 1970s campus, but with more modern twists such using pre-fabricated brick reliefs, and incorporating bay windows. A large atrium facilitates extrovert and open collaboration across the organisation, and customers are already on arrival presented with the company’s activities, via glazed openings in the lobby, revealing workshops and office space.

C.F. Møller Architects has designed the project with C.F. Møller Landscape and engineering firm Moe. The client is the Danish Technological Institute, and the construction was carried out by Enemærke & Petersen (originally started by Pihl).
