Scientific research projects are often highly complicated and heavily serviced buildings. They frequently need to deliver “wet and dry” and “high category” laboratories, with environmental requirements which affect how the building is designed, built and used. REAL Consulting’s approach is early engagement with the relevant user groups to develop and sign-off detailed Room Data Sheets. These are decided through ‘hands-on’ user group meetings and are critical to the successful design and delivery in this sector developing an understanding by all parties as to what will be delivered.

REAL Consulting also allows for long lead times for business case approvals, which can’t be overlooked when preparing overall project programmes. To us, delivery is crucial, that’s why we take everything on board including; challenging time scales, funding allocation and changes of use, such as offices to laboratories, which impact adjacent users.
