Feasibility study: in-depth analysis relocation laboratory 

A contract research organisation that provides testing and consultancy services to pharmaceutical companies asked Royal HaskoningDHV to assess the suitability of a proposed new location. A broad analysis was carried out, including whether other possibilities were available.
