Laboratory Design & Consultancy Services

Laboratory Design


As part of our portfolio we are able to offer full laboratory design and consultancy services. Backed with £10,000,000 of Professional Indemnity Insurance iab are able to act as a consultant or a consultant contractor. The design stage of any project is possibly the most important element to the successful completion of any laboratory scheme. This means that the consultation period is to be given the highest priority and should start as early as possible. Invariably, too little time is set aside for the initial meetings and overall design period. The gathering of information, understanding what each area is to be used for, the work flow patterns, the services that are required for equipment, are there any considerations needed for HVAC plant? These are some of the most important to think of at design stage. A mistake at this point could lead to failure so to employ a specialist company with the pedigree to perform this complex exercise is vital. iab have 25 years direct experience backed by 48 years of personal experience from our Managing Director Mr John Arran.

Like all consultants iab would charge for the service but the benefits outweigh the potential costs of compromise or failure. As part of our portfolio we act as Design and Build Contractors. In this capacity we can provide cost savings against the consultancy service if we eventually become the appointed Design and Build Contractor. If you have a project under consideration, it’s never too early to start the design process. We have clients that have entered into the design exercise, shelved the proposal due to capital restraints and returned to us more than 12 months later. We have many successful projects and satisfied clients. Invariably we complete the designs, bid for the contract and secure the Design and Build part of the project. The complete package would be from initial design through to handing over a fully commissioned building.
