The UK has a strong reputation for research and development with some outstanding laboratory facilities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Finding cures for medical challenges such as cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis are only the tip of the iceberg, however.

There are new innovations in gene therapy to explore, forensic techniques and drug development that all combine to make us a world leader. There are non-medical laboratory facilities helping to developing new technologies in driving, digital media and even food.

Of course, no research and development facility, whatever it’s core purpose, can deliver the latest cures or transformational changes without a good laboratory.

Any laboratory construction, whether it’s for healthcare or medical R&D, pharmaceutical or something else, will require strict adherence to regulations to ensure it is fit for purpose. Not only that, creating new, state of the art facilities generally involves innovation and a high degree of expertise from the construction company involved in the development.
