From Tuesday 16th June 2020, we have provided a No-Touch Digital Hand Sanitiser and Thermometer as part of our COVID Temperature Testing Facility at reception for client use. This offers the dual beneﬁts of checking the temperature of clients, visitors and workLAB staff as well as dispensing hand sanitiser for disinfection. Clients or visitors with a reading over 37.6 °c will be asked to leave the building and take a retest in 10 minutes. If you have a second high reading, we ask that you leave the building and see medical advice. All visitors and clients to workLAB are requested to use the facility.
” We take the health and safety of our clients as our number 1 priority here at workLAB so any practical measures that we can take to add to their sense of safety and wellbeing while at work are considered during this unprecedented time for businesses. We are delighted to see so many of our clients back to their offices in recent weeks ” said Alicia Maguire, General Manager workLAB.
In February 2020, workLAB continued its expansion by adding 12 new office spaces to its state of the art workspace offerings.
The new offices range in size from seven one-two person offices, to a number of larger bespoke spaces that were designed after working closely with clients to meet their specific needs.
“We worked closely with clients and our design team to ensure the new spaces delivered exactly what the companies wanted while staying with our vision of offering a high-end workspace for professionals in Waterford,” said Alicia Maguire, General Manager of workLAB.

Great start to the week here at workLAB Waterford with the announcement of Incupharm, one of three projects to benefit by a total of over €2.8 million under the Regional Enterprise Development Fund.
Incupharm which will be located in workLAB Waterford will become operational in 2019. The project will receive almost €800,000 to provide bespoke laboratory space at the IDA Industrial Park to support life sciences start-ups.
This fantastic initiative that will address a lack of quality affordable lab facilities as well as provide specialist services to incubate life science start‐ups in the South East and nationally. There are already over 8,000 people employed in the pharma and medical device industry in the region and Waterford and the South East are fast becoming a life science innovation hub, particularly for indigenous start-up companies so this incubation unit will play a critical role in building on the capability and entrepreneurship potential of existing indigenous and multinational life science companies.
Congratulations to Crystal Valley Tech & National Design Innovation Enterprise Hub who were also beneficiaries.
Minister John Halligan T.D. Minister of State for Training, Skills, Innovation, Research and Development was in workLAB to make the funding accountments.
