About UsAll you want to know about Labs31

Innovative engineering

Labs31 is an innovative engineering firm, which is specialized in designing and optimizing laboratories. We are a relatively young company but have on average more than 25 years of experience with both national and international laboratory projects.

We model quickly and efficiently together with all stakeholders. We design in 3D using BIM Compliant Revit software. We pay a lot of attention to sustainability, efficiency, ergonomics, safety, waste management in the lab, but also circular choices. Through our Labs31 Laboratory Design Canvas approach and the accompanying workshops, we design the most ideal lab together with relevant parties and can supervise the entire project if desired.

We are your LabGuru

We know all about laboratories and consider ourselves experts. Therefor we can help in many ways. If we do not know it, we will find the answers together with you. To ensure good service we are also working closely together with third parties which have proven themselves in the laboratory business. In the meantime we have over twenty-five years of international laboratory project experience.

Why 31 in Labs31?

We call ourselves Labs thirty-one for a reason. Labs is the abbreviation of Laboratory and the 31 because we are proud of our Dutch roots and 31 is our country calling code.

We have a typical Dutch no-nonsense mentality, we want to be connected to people and are result-driven, or as we would like to say: "Getting the job done!"


Core Values

Our core values are transparency, involvement, trust, and fun. We strongly believe in open communication and long-term partnerships. Working closely with our clients, suppliers and colleagues will deliver a better high-quality outcome.
