Cambridge A Centre for Lab Technology

6 February 2018

Cambridge is now a central hub for laboratories and lab technology in the UK, further bolstered by Cambridge University’s Academy for Science and Technology. In today’s blog we discover more about the city’s significant scientific status – and why choosing a specialist laboratory removals company can ensure that your move goes as swiftly and smoothly as possible.

Cambridge – a hub for science and industry

Cambridge has long been home to some of the UK’s most respected educational institutions – and offers an ideal environment for technological advancement and learning. Over the past few years the city’s offering has greatly diversified, offering specialist spaces for computer laboratories, research facilities and more. New developments include American giant Thermo Fisher Scientific’s UK hub alongside the respected Cavendish Laboratory and Sainsbury Laboratory linked to the University of Cambridge.

Choosing removal companies in Cambridge

There are a few key things to look for when choosing removal companies in Cambridge. Whether you’re moving a facility across country or heading to the city from London or nearby Oxford, excellent lab logistics and best practice will be key aspects of a successful relocation. Avoid making a selection based purely on price – and instead carefully check a company’s credentials and ask to see testimonials and reviews to indicate the quality of past performance.

“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

“We have a good working relationship and specifically use Johnsons as they are competitive, always turn up on time with the correct number of operatives, and their removal team is always courteous which matters especially when patients and our staff are affected.”

David Shepherd, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

“Johnsons Laboratory Logistics have been providing relocation services to us for a number of years now. They are competitive, reliable and trustworthy.”
