Skills & Results

Building upon initial designs from Ridge and Partners LLP, we further designed and delivered this laboratory and office fit out within Units 4 & 5, Oxford Technology Park. The area, totalling 11,000 sq ft, was refurbished to include CL2 laboratories and store room, as well as CAT B office area across two floors.

The laboratory areas were designed in collaboration with the laboratory users to ensure each lab works perfectly for their processes. The design carefully considered the lab user, with features such as built in storage for lab coats, large windows between labs and internal lab transfer hatch. The labs feature a combination of mobile and fixed benching, vinyl flooring and CAT 5 water installation. In addition, the first floor laboratory space includes include a demo lab and training laboratory.

The fully furnished office space includes open plan office, break out area, boardroom, meeting rooms, phone booths and further collaboration space. Tea points and bathrooms were also installed.
