Research & Development Project Experience

Working with some of the biggest names in the industry, Clegg Food Projects consistently deliver high standard laboratory construction projects from food and drink to forensic and pharmaceutical testing facilities.

Our experience

Food, drink, and high-care manufacturing factories often require spaces for compliant testing, Research & Development (R&D), New Product Development (NPD) or laboratories. These facilities are crucial for businesses to innovate, offer sound analytical testing, and carry out essential due diligence on their products and services. Ensuring these areas are designed and built to the highest standards is critical for success.

We therefore support manufacturers and independent testing companies with the design, refurbishment, and laboratory construction of purpose-built facilities that incorporate multiple laboratories, offices, amenities, and more.

As food and drink construction specialists, we understand the principles of hygienic design and efficient layouts as well as ensuring services are designed and implemented around the facility requirements.

We work closely with our clients to agree the appropriate standard, specifications and compliance for the various rooms. This can include incorporating a number of different analytical testing regimes such as water and food testing and the installation of ‘clean room’ standards for structures, room temperature, building finishes and services to achieve the required standard for laboratory testing procedures.

GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), R&D, and NPD testing services are in high demand and can experience a sudden increase in testing requirements. Our team are therefore experts at working on a live site, so you can continue operations while laboratory construction takes place – minimising disruption.

In turn projects are delivered safely and quickly. It is our flexibility and experience that enables our customers’ needs to become a reality, modifying and building to meet the increased capacity requirements.
