KalVista Pharmaceuticals needed its new labs to combine a safe, light, energising work environment with an ergonomic layout, promoting staff well-being and enhancing productivity. The APMG team developed the brief and delivered modern, fresh, hard-wearing labs designed to be practical and pleasant to work in.
KalVista specialises in the research and development of new treatments for diseases with significant unmet need. Its purpose-built laboratories are housed in its facility in Salisbury, UK.
A clean grey colour palette was selected for the lab furniture, complemented by contemporary brushed stainless-steel handles. Toughened glass splash backs were installed behind the sinks to add to the feeling of spaciousness while protecting the surrounding work areas.
APMG’s sturdy pedestal benching system is extremely robust and was chosen for the chemistry lab where large fixed equipment called for static units.
In the instrumentation and biology labs APMG’s cantilever benching system was installed. Industry-leading levels of steelwork strength and longevity make it robust enough to support heavy bench-mounted equipment. Combined with the fully mobile under bench cupboards, the system future-proofs the labs, offering the freedom to flex the layout to accommodate changing requirements.
To keep these new labs fit for purpose and looking good APMG recommended tough Trespa ToplabPLUS® worktops. Hard wearing and with excellent chemical resistance properties, they have been fitted throughout.
Attention has been paid to every detail. We’ve even designed special drawer inners to offer smart storage solutions that keep the surfaces clutter-free. Manufactured by our plastic fabrication team, they precisely meet the dimensions of KalVista’s delicate equipment to store it safely.
The result: Another multi-lab project designed, manufactured and installed to brief. Happy, satisfied clients, happy, productive lab teams and a happy APMG. Plus, another testimonial to our quality products and our helpful, professional team.

“Our research teams love the new labs. They’re light, hard-wearing, easy to move around and have all the storage they wanted. APMG gave us a professional, friendly service from start to finish and we’re delighted with the result.”
