The Benefits of Renting a Dedicated Laboratory Space

The Benefits of Renting a Dedicated Laboratory Space

  • 6th January 2021

For some businesses, there is a need to run a dedicated laboratory space alongside a dedicated office space in order for the business to function as efficiently as possible.

Having production facilities on the same site as the offices can be vital if you want to keep communication between the different departments of the company in close communication. Whether this is the R&D department who are not lab-based, IT support who work closely with all the departments, or even the finance department, having the ability to move between office and laboratory can be very beneficial.


When it comes to ensuring a business is running as smoothly as possible, communication is absolutely key. And when different parts of your  business are operating from different sites this is not always as easy as you might like it to be.

Whilst modern technology makes communication a much simpler process, sometimes things still need to be done in a face to face situation. Having your staff based in two completely different locations can also lead to something of a them and us type of situation where the two different sites rarely mix and a divide occurs.

When everyone is based in the same building, this split is less likely to occur.

Unfortunately, not all modern business parks can offer the sort of set up that would work well for a company who require both office and laboratory space in the same location. Most of the time, unless you have a custom-designed building, the option is laboratory space or office space in two completely different locations. For those companies looking to rent business space this can present something of a conundrum.

Finding the right location

For some companies finding the right location for their business can mean more than just the area of the country that they need, or proximity to transport links. Being able to find laboratory space and office space in the same space can be the number one factor in their search.
