Project Goal

Our client Royal London is the largest mutual life insurance and pensions company in the UK. Helping plan for life’s financial milestones for 150 years.

Asset Management (RLAM) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal London, RLAM is one of the UK’s leading fund management companies, offering a range of pooled investment products as well as providing bespoke solutions to meet specific objectives.

We were tasked to create a compliant (CL2) fitted laboratory space ready for life sciences clients and associated office space.

Skills & Results

Royal London, together with XLB (Development Managers), commissioned Bulb to convert an existing ground floor office space into a ready to occupy, self-contained CL2 lab facility in the much sought-after Oxfordshire region.

We designed an open plan laboratory with lab benching, ample storage, vinyl flooring, vulcathene drainage, technical level lighting and a separate utility/store area with rear goods-in access.

A small kitchenette, meeting room, cellular and open offices make it an independent and flexible space for early-stage companies in Abingdon’s thriving science & technology community.
