How can we
New five storey development consisting of laboratories & offices on ground floor to fourth floor along with a rooftop plant area. The five storey, 50,000 sq ft building has expanded bioscience facilities in Nottingham city centre and accommodates up to 200 specialist science jobs. The state-of-the-art facility is fitted with biology and chemistry laboratories and ancillary space for commercial leasing to both start-up and existing small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the bioscience sector.

I worked closely with the Briggs & Forrester team and was impressed by their pro-active approach and technical ability which clearly demonstrated their experience of undertaking similar projects in the laboratory and pharmaceutical sector. This together with the competence of their work force and supply chain was a significant factor in the successful delivery of this challenging project.
We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.
The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.
We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
