About Us

Yild Technical Spaces was born out of a passion to provide cutting edge technical space at a low entry cost and with low maintenance, to a wide range of Australian clients.

Laboratory and technical spaces are a fundamental requirement for the strong STEM sector in Australia, for both institutional and private enterprises.

Yild now offers Wet labs, Dry labs, and ISO Cleanroom space for short and long term tenants, who can benefit from a world class turn key technical facility where every detail is taken care of.

You do Science. We do Space.

Yild enables research, science and technology ventures to expand and flourish without the entry cost, maintenance and headaches of owning your own space.

Russell Urquhart

Russell's early working life was spent in mechanical and allied businesses, before founding G3lab in 2011 to bring the very best overseas lab HVAC trends to the Australian market.

During several years expanding the company from a lab HVAC provider to a complete lab fit-out business, Russell came in touch with many stakeholders in the Australasian lab sector who found multiple barriers to suitable and cost-effective technical spaces for the growth of their enterprises.

The creation of YILD is an exciting step and Russell is passionate about creating modern and flexible lab spaces that reflect the needs of the dynamic Australian science sector.
