University Laboratory Relocation: More Than Just a Move

University laboratories are the epicenters of groundbreaking research and innovation. They house not just equipment, but years of hard work, research data, and invaluable specimens. Relocating such a space is not merely about moving items from point A to B; it’s about ensuring the continuity of research, preserving the integrity of specimens, and guaranteeing the safety of every single piece of equipment.

When it comes to university laboratory relocation, it’s essential to partner with experts who understand the unique challenges and requirements of moving sensitive equipment, specimens, and materials. At Armstrong Scientific Transport, we specialize in laboratory moving services tailored to meet the specific needs of universities across Canada, the U.S., and the world.

Unique Challenges of University Laboratory Relocations

  1. Diverse Research Fields: A university lab might be conducting research in biotechnology, while another might be focused on chemical engineering. Each field has its unique set of equipment and specimens, requiring specialized handling and a laboratory relocation specialist.
  2. Legacy Equipment: Universities often have legacy equipment – older models that are still in use due to their relevance or historical significance. Such equipment might not have the robustness of modern machines and needs extra care.
  3. Student Projects: Unlike corporate labs, university labs often have ongoing student projects. Ensuring that these projects are not disrupted during the move is crucial.
  4. Safety and Compliance: University labs often handle hazardous materials, such as chemicals. Moving them requires adherence to strict safety protocols and regulatory compliance.
