Creating a new laboratory is a complex process that requires not only a good deal of planning but the right installation and construction processes. Working with the best building team ensures that your design ideas are properly implemented, creating a space that is specifically designed for excellence in research and development.
With over 40 years’ providing cutting edge buildings and installations, Hightown has worked with universities such as John Moores in Liverpool as well as leading pharmaceutical and other research companies across the UK. Our teams understand that this is a highly specialised area of building and make sure the right people are in place to complete any laboratory installation project.
Creating a laboratory space involves making hundreds of different decisions, from the organisation of the physical area, the installation of the appropriate equipment, maintaining health and safety standards and adhering to sector regulations, to name just a few. At the heart of Hightown’s success is the close collaborative relationships that we have with our clients.
The Right Team for the Job
We believe in putting the relevant skilled personnel in place to complete each project, including when installing a new laboratory. Whether we’re starting at the initial design and consultation phase or implementing carefully thought out plans by your own architect, you can be sure you’ll have the project management and construction expertise that knows how to deliver on your expectations.
Openness and Transparency
Most businesses or organisations want to work with a construction company they can trust. That’s why we believe strongly in being open and transparent in everything we do. That means engaging closely with stakeholders and building meaningful relationships, working hard to understand the requirements of each laboratory installation and being honest about how the project is progressing. Any construction project will face challenges – our job is to work effectively to overcome these and bring your design to realisation.
Health and Safety
While your new laboratory might well be part of a new build, often it’s in a building that is still being used and where work needs to continue. Again, we work closely with stakeholders to come up with a strategy to make sure that disruption is kept down to a minimum. Good health and safety practices lie at the heart of everything we do and all our staff, including contracted teams, are properly trained and up to date with the latest legal requirements.
Another increasingly important part of Hightown’s practice is our commitment to sustainability. This runs right through everything we do, from sourcing suppliers to how we deal with important issues such as waste. We always look to recycle and repurpose waste as much as possible before we even contemplate sending anything to landfill. This is built into our project management as a standard nowadays and is something that many of our clients are keen to engage with.
