The Project

The existing office space was located at Fitzroy House, the client required to return the space to the landlord after their 12-month occupation period, our specialist team were brought on board to install the temporary laboratory space in a fast-track programme.

Ensuring the understood our clients’ aspirations of keeping cost to a minimum and delivering fast track lab fit out within a 7-week programme period, we hit the ground running. On site we commenced with the strip out required to the existing raised floor, glazed partitions and existing kitchen. Following the CAT ‘B’ fit out of state-of-the-art lab space, we were required to be on site to assist the client with the move in and be the point of contact if any issues were raised.


Coordinated Programming

Due to its fast-track nature, the key was to implement a design freeze as soon as possible and ensure that the MEP design was submitted on time and signed off by the client team/landlord in the required 1 week period to avoid programme delays.


Client Direct Items

The client was providing the lab benching as client direct item, this required liaison with the suppliers to ensure they matched our programme dates in order to remain on track.

Thank you to 8build for an amazing job. A new modern laboratory that will allow us to go on to the next stage of our development.
