Expansion of Premises
To accommodate the increase in staff levels, indicated in the Staff News, plans have been drawn up to increase the laboratory and office space at the Waldegrave Road site by about 15%. To enable this, a decision was made as part of our Business Continuity Plan to lease a building locally to house a back-up Server and other IT facilities. In addition it has been decided to move our Archives from our present site to the additional facility. We signed the lease for this new property at the beginning of December and hope to start transferring IT Equipment and Archives early in the New Year following some minor repair work. More details on the moving of the Archives will follow prior to any documentation being transferred.
The moving of our Archive Facility will enable us to create new laboratory and office space. Invitations to tender for this work have been issued and we expect the work to start early in the New Year and take between 8-12 weeks to complete. Plans have been produced to enable us to keep working during this process and we hope to keep disruption to our services to a minimum. Again further details will follow prior to the work starting. The expansion of our Laboratory space will enable us to purchase a 2nd ICP-MS and ICP-OES to meet the growing demand for Metals Analysis.
