Where We Have Come From

The Directors of Lab-works had already established a very successful architectural practice in 1981, being involved in a mix of residential and commercial work. Then in 1992 we were engaged to look at the refurbishment of some general laboratories for a Crown Research Institute.

It was the fresh approach and innovative ideas, working from first principles, that saw the successful completion of our first laboratory efforts.

Liking what they saw, the CRI engaged us to do further work, with the projects growing in complexity. With our expertise developing other CRI's also sought out our services and a whole specialist area of architecture was opened up and embraced.

The increasing number and diversity of projects convinced the directors of the viability of this niche area of work and Lab-works Architecture Ltd was established in 2001.

Our name and brand reflects the specialised nature of the work we now do.
