Whether you are setting up a new research facility or need to refurbish your current premises, choosing the right lab installation services can be a challenge.

With over 45 years’ experience in the building and refurbishment industry, Hightown is well placed to deliver cutting edge design and building that perfectly meets the needs of today’s modern laboratory installations.

Creating a lab that is fit for purpose and delivers the potential for high quality research or technical services requires a great deal of thought and input from stakeholders. At Hightown, we have a good reputation for dealing directly with our customers in an open and honest way. That collaboration has been an important part of our success in the past.

There may well be specific requirements for your lab installation such as high spec air conditioning and ventilation, areas that need to be isolated or self-contained, putting in fume cupboards or dealing with problems such as new drainage. A new lab installation will need a different approach compared to a refurbishment where the formal structure may well already be in place. Electrical wiring might need to be changed, more benches put in or areas of the laboratory partitioned off for one reason or another.

You’ll want to be sure that the laboratory installation services you use are complying you’re your sector legislation, including current British Standards for lab furniture for example. At Hightown, we bring the right teams to each project, from the moment the design is being contemplated right through to the installation and full completion.

Over the years, we’ve been involved with a wide range of construction and refurbishment projects across the North West and the rest of the UK. Our clients include top universities and major retailers as well as pharmaceutical companies. We’ve provided new builds and refurbishments for the aviation industry, education, research and development and home build sectors to name just a few.

Key to our success has been working closely with all stakeholders and committing to an open and collaborative approach. These partnerships with our clients ensure that everyone is kept in the loop and projects are completed on time and to expectations. That applies whether we are providing our installation services for a shop on the high street, a local school or major university or a state of the art new laboratory.

We have an excellent health and safety record and all our teams, as well as any contracted teams, are fully trained and up to date with the latest protocols and legislation. If your laboratory is being installed on existing premises, we make sure that disruption is kept to a minimum so that your staff can get on with their daily business in absolute safety.

We’re also a laboratory construction company that puts sustainability at the heart of everything we do. That means we source all materials ethically and ensure that any waste is dealt with appropriately – recycling and reusing where possible rather than sending to landfill. As a family owned business we are passionate about the environment and monitor our own impact as any responsible company should.

Creating a new lab or opting for a refurbishment to existing facilities is a big undertaking. It makes sense to choose a partner that understands what you need and has the experience to deliver on your expectations. Contact the Hightown Group today to find out more.
