BioMed Realty Expands Into UK with Help from Radius

San Diego-based real estate provider’s Granta Park campus serves UK’s thriving life science community

BOSTON--()--BioMed Realty, which owns, acquires, develops, leases and manages laboratory and office space for tenants in core life science/biotech markets, has expanded into the rapidly growing UK market. Global operations expert Radius is providing expat assignment services and payroll and human resource support to streamline BioMed Realty’s overseas expansion.

“Placing US executives in the UK is challenging from our California corporate headquarters,” said Janice Kameir, senior vice president of human resources for BioMed Realty. “Radius worked closely with us to manage the new payroll and tax compliance processes in the UK, making our overseas launch effort successful.”

BioMed Realty operates Granta Park, a 120-acre estate in Cambridge, UK, that serves some of the world’s leading science and biotechnology companies. Radius offered guidance to BioMed Realty on payroll tax requirements and filings, and employment practices for their first expat employee. Radius also helped with establishing compensation packages and implementing a range of HR services for BioMed Realty’s first UK national employee.

“The healthcare, life sciences and biotech sectors are growing rapidly in the UK and the opportunity for BioMed Realty is significant,” said Stephen Chipman, CEO of Radius. “Granta Park is now a dynamic environment for scientific discovery, and we’re pleased they’ve placed their confidence in our team to help sustain their leadership on the ground there.”
