Lab Space

Finding a commercial space that provides office and laboratory space for hire can be challenging. We understand that every business is different, with its own unique needs, and our adaptable lab and serviced office spaces reflect that.

Conveniently located next to the University of Huddersfield, tenants can tap into collaborative projects with research academics, access recruitment opportunities, and benefit from access to technology available on Innovation Avenue, for design, prototyping and product verification.

Our lab space provides state-of-the-art equipment for companies from sectors such as chemistry, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, and can be adapted to suit any requirement.

Our unique combined lab and serviced office spaces remove the need for two separate rooms. Connected through an adjoining door, businesses can research in the laboratory and record their findings immediately next door in the office.

Speak to a member of the team if you have any specific requirements for your lab space that you need to operate your business. We have supported numerous tenants in installing technology, such as fume cupboards and water treatment systems. A member of the team will be able to advise on whether your add-ons are feasible for the lab, consider any potential health and safety risks, and assess potential impacts on other tenants.
