The project builds on LJJ’s experience of laboratory schemes and will include the design and installation of class A, B and C ductwork appropriate to the low-risk CL2 status.

The roof-top plant room will include extraction plant with heat recovery, chilled and gas boilers.

DALI lighting systems in the laboratory and office areas will include manual on and absence-detection off functionality.
