What is LM Labs?
London Midland Labs is a focal point for our new technology projects, where we innovate with our passengers and where we develop relationships with startups on the future of travel and mobility. It is a window into the work that we’re doing to offer our rail travel customers ‘Simply Better Journeys’.
Labs has been created to showcase how we’re working to improve your experience, and to get feedback on whether we’re living up to our mantra of ‘Simply Better Journeys’.
Our job with Labs is to find, support, and work with the brightest, smartest minds from the start-up landscape so that we can collectively develop timely and effective solutions.Ian McLaren- London Midland

The LM Labs HQ - a space to experiment with innovative new ideas & technology.
The space is based within the Serendip Smart City Incubator at the Innovation Birmingham Campus, home to a vibrant community of 1000+ digital entrepreneurs and technologists. Serendip provides market access and expertise for your digital start-up through close partnerships with major organisations, designed to accelerate the early growth of your business.
The Lab space is situated on the mezzanine level and is furnished with the finer detail in mind. This new connected work space includes high end design pieces such as Herman Miller Sayl chairs, electric sit/stand/tilt top desks and bespoke prototyping tables. A great deal of thought has been given to the zoning of the space with desked, collaborative and break out space provided alongside the Labs board room. Vibrant colours and comfort is a focal point in keeping with the Labs ethos and branding with the majority of items sourced locally from Birmingham. The Labs environment is then complimented with creative lighting in the form of impactful neon tubing and Phillips Hue technology adding the finishing touches to this contemporary working space.
