Operational Review

Although you know what you already do, has this been tested to see if it is the most efficient way of doing things?

By this we do not mean your scientific processes, but the relationships and layout of your labs and facilities. Staff, samples and products needing to travel a long distance due to an inefficient layout is but one example.

Many of our clients have found that having an independent review of their functional relationships has a significant improvement in their efficiency and productivity.

Feasibility Studies

What is the best option for your business?

To find out we look at various options and assess their practicality and cost implications.

New site or the existing, entire facility refurbishment or just parts of it, building new or refurbishing an existing building, what happens if we acquire or divulge a division, what are the compliance issues?

These are some of the things we look at so that you have a report that allows you to make informed decisions on the best way forward.

Master Planning

Often this can be one of the more valuable tools you can engage us to provide. Especially if projects are to be staged.

Working together, we look at options and then create a co-ordinated plan to eliminate ad-hoc decision making and significantly reduce the need for re-working completed areas in the future.

In addition, we have been able to advise clients on the best sequencing of work to reduce compliance issues, as well as the associated time and cost.

Other products and services from Lab-works



Being registered architects and members for the New Zealand Institute of Architects means we provide comprehensive architectural services, right from initial concepts and feasibility studies through to construction and completion of the project. Also refer to our Specilaised Services for details on the added value services we offer.


Design & Documentation

As we go through the design process together, the options and ideas are refined further and further until we have the best design solution to take forward into the construction documentation. Design work is typically sketchy and includes layout plans and 3-D views so you can understand what you are getting. This can include structural, services, hydraulic, electrical, or process engineers, and quantity surveyors.


Procurement & Construction

To do this we visit the site regularly, answer questions and resolve problems, instruct rectification work, hold site meetings, and manage the paperwork that runs the contract. However there are times where it is more important to get value for money, where there is a need for a special quality of work for the right price.
