University CL3 labs and cleanrooms

World-class research demands world-class facilities, like the new containment labs and cleanrooms we delivered for a leading UK university.

We recently handed over a large suite of containment laboratories and cleanrooms for a prestigious UK university research department. The CL3 laboratories will be used for handling Schedule 5 pathogens, toxins and relevant genetic materials.


CL3 laboratories and safety cabinets may require fumigation to sterilise them so they can be safely maintained and tested or decontaminated if there is a spillage of biological materials. This means that special chemical-resistant material and finishes are required inside the laboratories.


For this project, the labs were coated internally with a specialist, chemical-resistant, flexible finish with an impermeable fibreglass layer to provide durability and resilience and had well-sealed windows to the exterior. In addition, all MEP services were penetrated through using Roxtec mechanical seals.


We look forward to sharing the full story on this exciting project soon – please check our Case Studies pages regularly for our latest updates.
