Innovative life sciences campus, enhancing efficiency



Riverlabs, a 28-acre life sciences campus in Ware, Hertfordshire, forms a vibrant hub within the 'Golden Triangle'. Comprising three phases of development, the campus offers state-of-the-art laboratory spaces with a focus on sustainability, targeting an impressive 75% carbon reduction.

Riverlabs 1 and 2 provide a combined 361,323 square feet of ready-built, affordable lab space, catering to diverse scientific needs. The site’s advantageous location within a 45-minute radius of key life science clusters in London, Cambridge, and Stevenage, combined with the existing skilled workforce, positions Riverlabs as a prime location for groundbreaking research and innovation.

Delivering comprehensive cost planning that spans from light touch of existing builds to detailed estimates for full refurbishment of a fully fitted lab, the RLB team also added value by incorporating utilities cost management and project and programme management services. Sustainability was also interwoven throughout the project, enhancing the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings of existing structures.
