Chemistry Research Laboratory is a research facility home to Chemistry at the University of Oxford. Her Majesty The Queen opened the building on 20 February 2004, which replaced the older Dyson Perrins Laboratory just across the street from it. It has five floors covering ~17,000 sq.m of laboratory and office space and cost £60 million to construct. The money was raised with grants from the JIF, Wolfson Foundation, EP Abraham Trust, Thomas Swan, the family of Landon T Clay, the Salters Company and a £20 million partnership with IP2IPO. The building is effectively split into two parts, the southern side of the building is given over to offices which house both academic and administrative staff, whereas the northern side of the building houses the laboratories and write up areas. Splitting the two sides there is a canteen on the lower ground floor, which can be crossed via the use of bridges on higher floors.
