The Brief

Gilson Scientific Ltd. is one of the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers of liquid handling equipment. Their product range includes the renowned Pipetman brand of Pipettes, as well as a wide range of automated and complex handling and measuring devices. The company's headquarters are located in Luton, Bedfordshire.

The company has been based close to Luton Town Centre for a number of years, but with the continued redevelopment of this area the company was forced to relocate at the end of their lease due to proposals to redevelop their site.

Following a recommendation, we were invited in to discuss Gilson's requirements for their new office, warehouse and laboratory facility on the Woodside Industrial Estate in Dunstable. The space required a lot of reconfiguration to suit the specific requirements for the various functions. We were successfully chosen for the project following a vote by all staff members for their preferred proposal.

The Solution


In order to accommodate all the required laboratories, R&D departments and additional office space in to the predominantly warehouse space a new mezzanine floor was installed. Re-enforced floors were added into lab areas to create anti-vibration testing facilities and a new bespoke air-conditioning system was installed to assist in maintaining very specific temperature and air cleanliness levels.

New partitions were built to create the new offices and laboratory areas. The facility required a full data and electrical installation. New racking was built within the warehouse, creating a much more flexible storage and dispatch area from their previous location. All new furniture, storage and specialist laboratory tables were provided, giving the finished facility a much more modern and functional space. A large kitchen, break-out and games room was also allowed for with the additional space created by the mezzanine floor as well as new meeting rooms, a boardroom and customer welcome area.

As a creative agency, we are a fussy client and Oaktree understood our brief straight away. Their solution was the only one we saw that really captured our brand within the office environment, and we could take forward without feeling we needed to micromanage the project. The implementation was professional and organised, and they showed flexibility with unexpected requests right the way through. Very friendly team right from design to cleaning. Very happy to recommend.
