How to Find the Best Lab Space for Your Research

How to find the perfect lab space for your research project.

New Jersey and New York both offer a ton of great lab space available for both lease and rent, but it’s important to make sure you find the right space for you. Whether you’re looking for a lab space for biology, chemistry or R&D research, these are the important factors you need to consider when looking at renting or buying lab space.

Is the Lab Space “Turnkey”?

One of the first and most important questions you want to find out is if the lab space you are considering is “Turnkey” or not. Essentially what this means is the facility is offers immediate and ready-to-use access. When it comes to conducting research in a lab, the last thing you want to do is focus time on getting the space ready. The benefits of using a “turnkey” lab is the success of the space has already been proven by past research, limiting the amount of time you have to wonder whether the space is going to be the right fit for your specific needs. You should feel comfortable knowing the facility you either lease or buy is already equipped with the essentials like lab benches, fume hoods, hazardous material storage, emergency shower and eye wash stations and more. At Tarvin Commercial, we ensure all lab space we suggest is “turnkey” so you can spend more time on research and less time on space preparation.

Flexible Leasing Terms

Because the life sciences industry is forever adapting and changing, it’s important to secure lab space with flexible leasing terms to meet your long-term objectives. Whether your project is in the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical or biotechnology field, you want to make sure you are working in a space that can not only sustain your current model, but also grow as your research and operation expands. Tarvin Commercial is dedicated to ensuring you not only find the right space, but that you receive the best lease options for your growing needs.

Secure a Partnership for Lab Space

While “turnkey” lab spaces and flexible leasing options may be easier to find, one of the most important factors to consider when looking for lab space is developing a partnership with either the facility itself or the company leasing the space. Make sure the company you work with offers facility management and works with you to fulfill your specific operational needs. At Tarvin Commercial, we provide highly experienced corporate managers to meet your every need, and we are proud of our site selection process. We work with potential clients to find space that fits your research requirements, while also taking into account your financial goals. It is important to work with a company who is dedicated and involved in the success of your research, and is willing to adapt and adjust should your needs change.
