Relocating a laboratory can be a daunting task, but with careful planning, it can be done seamlessly and efficiently. 

The key to any successful relocation project is considering all the different elements that require attention…

Business and process continuity must be maintained during the relocation, and this means taking into account equipment inventory, de-commissioning, and re-commissioning. OEM liaison, labelling and asset management, and clean room considerations are also important factors to consider. Additionally, the transportation and handling of dangerous goods and chemicals, samples and research specimens, frozen or refrigerated materials, glassware, and consumables must also be taken into account.

Other important considerations include files, folders, and documentation, as well as packing and crating. Egress and access routes, regulatory requirements, and the safe and secure transportation of all assets must also be planned. Insurance and the disposal of surplus assets must also be considered in the planning process.
