PBA are supporting the delivery of the Advanced Quantum Metrology Laboratory at the National Physical Laboratory due for completion in Spring 2019.

We were appointed by engineering builder M+W Group to provide civil and structural services to create a world-class laboratory for the cutting-edge measurement research facility at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington.

The National Physical Laboratory is the UK's National Measurement Institute, and is a world-leading centre of excellence in developing and applying the most accurate measurement standards, science and technology available. The new building will be connected to the existing Darwin Building through an atrium and will be refurbished to provide additional laboratory space.

The building will meet the strictest temperature, humidity, noise and vibration requirements, while also protecting a graft of Sir Isaac Newton’s apple tree next to the build. The Advanced Quantum Metrology Laboratory will set new standards for building performance to allow for nano and quantum measuring techniques at the Government site.
