Science & Higher Education

The qualified choice for learning and science facility construction

In 1976 Walter Lilly began a relationship with GSK, that evolved into us becoming a key player in the science and higher education construction sector.

Over the years we have worked on a large number of laboratory new build and refurbishment projects for key pharmaceutical companies and some of the nation’s most prestigious universities including Oxford, Imperial College, UCL, Sussex and Surrey.

We have refurbished chemistry and biology laboratories for Eli Lilly; virology containment and other specialist facilities; a Learning Resource Centre and a Food Store facility for Kingston University; and a Biosciences Innovation Centre at Queen Mary and Westfield College in Whitechapel. We are framework contractors for DEFRA APHA, Weybridge and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. We have also undertaken other high containment and GMP contracts for a wide range of higher education, life science and pharmaceutical manufacturing clients. We are currently designing and building our largest project to date for the Medical Research Council, the London Institute of Medical Sciences.

We have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to carry out all types of science related construction projects.

Please explore a selection of our projects for an insight into the scope and diversity of our work in the science and education sectors.

Science Facilities Management

Walter Lilly build and maintain some of the most complex scientific research facilities in London and the South East, many of which feature complex mechanical and electrical systems, fume cupboards, microbiological safety cabinets, cold and constant temperature close control rooms, building management control systems, data centres, lifts, fire alarms and security systems.

Walter Lilly’s Facilities Management service focuses on planned, proactive and preventative maintenance to ensure facilities are properly managed and fully operational at all times.

Ensuring the smooth running of any building or facility, we manage and reduce annual and total cost of property ownership. All maintenance visits can generally be planned around the business or educational needs of our clients.
