Fire and flooding can have a devastating impact on university departments.
Aport has experience in handling the aftermath of incidents where laboratories have suffered damage from either fire or flooding.
Our team will work with insurance companies and other intermediaries to help make the recovery process as smooth as possible. This includes removing all equipment from the site so it can be decontaminated and brought back to use if possible.
Aport can provide a complete solution for the removal of equipment, instruments and data, including a full packing service, transportation and secure off-site storage. Our highly skilled crews will create a full inventory of every item and each object will be electronically tagged so its location can be tracked at all times.
We can assist if you need to relocate to a new location and make sure your lab is up and running again as quickly as possible. Our extensive experience of laboratory removals means you can rest assured that your scientific data, research samples, instrumentation and equipment are in the very safest of hands.
We are able to move items in temperature-controlled vehicles where necessary and follow strict procedures and protocols, drawn up before any relocation takes place.
Using a professional firm like Aport to handle the removal, storage and relocation of expensive and sensitive equipment will help reduce the amount of time the affected area is out of action and speed up a return to productivity.
We appreciate that most disaster events like fires and floods are unexpected and even the best prepared universities can be caught off guard. Our crisis management team are able to respond calmly and quickly to these emergency situations, providing invaluable support when it is needed most.
Relocating a scientific facility after a major incident is a complex task which requires an expert solution. Our team will ensure all regulations are complied with at all times and assist with the decommissioning and recommissioning of instruments.
Our ability to qualify and validate a wide range of instruments will help minimise any downtime and reduce the level of disruption caused.
