Lab Logistics Services for Alderley Park Cheshire

15 February 2018

Science has become an integral aspect of Manchester’s identity – ever since the days of Turing and the Industrial Revolution before him. This reach is ever-expanding and evolving – with Agilent Technologies in Cheadle and Concept Life Sciences opening on the city’s periphery. Now Alderley Park promises to further develop the progression of science as an industry in the North West. So how can lab logistics services from Johnsons help companies looking to relocate to brand new facilities at a site promising to be the largest of its kind in the UK?

Alderley Park Cheshire – a pioneering advancement in science and technology

Alderley Park in Cheshire has long been a leading pharmaceutical facility in the UK, situated within the affluent ‘Golden Triangle’ alongside multi-million pound mansions and international business hubs with great transport links to Manchester and London. Formerly owned by pharmaceutical giant Astra Zeneca, the site was bought up and divided by Bruntwood in 2014. Now Alderley Park is home to MSP, which is currently developing the largest bioscience campus in the UK complete with shops, restaurants and gyms. Within 10 years the state of the art conference centre, auditorium and 400,000 square footage of commercial space is expected to attract hundreds of businesses occupying the scientific sector.

The importance and benefits of lab logistics for Cheshire labs

Professional lab logistics services are a vital aspect of smooth and efficient organisation for scientific labs, pharmaceutical testing facilities and research labs. When expanding or relocating lab logistics comes to the forefront, as safe and secure transportation of lab equipment with minimal downtime is key. Lab relocation requires specialist knowledge and service provision – as without this costly difficulties can occur as a result of disruption and delay. When dangerous goods or hazardous substances are involved the risks increase ten-fold, with safety and risk mitigation marked as a paramount concern.

“We have very positive feedback from the end users regarding all the crews involved in the move. Indeed at a steering group meeting this week one of the senior scientist not only praised the move teams but also requested if the same teams could be used for the move into the CL2 building next year.”

The Pirbright Institute

“The Johnsons team worked well with our own internal project team to make the overall move a success. The main phase went without any significant issues, and this was a testament to the close management and supervision of the Johnsons team at both sites during the 3 days of the move.”

Mark Garrod, Redx Pharma
