From incorporating specialist features for engineering tasks, to implementing safety measures for handling specialist gases, and ensuring optimal heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, every aspect of the construction process plays a critical role in creating a functional and efficient workspace.

Laboratory Construction Features Suitable for Engineering

Designing a lab with features tailored to the specific needs of engineering tasks is essential for enhancing productivity and innovation. From flexible workspaces to integrated technology systems and efficient lighting solutions, incorporating these elements can create a conducive environment for experimentation and collaboration.

Lab Design Features Suitable for Engineering

When designing a lab for an engineering company, it is crucial to incorporate features that promote collaboration, efficiency, and safety. Open-concept layouts, modular workstations, ample storage space, and integration of advanced technological systems are essential elements that can enhance the productivity and functionality of the workspace.

Laboratory Construction – Suitable Furniture Design

Laboratory furniture design for engineering facilities should prioritise functionality, durability and ergonomics. Adjustable workbenches, robust lab benches, storage cabinets, and seating arrangements tailored to the specific needs of engineering processes can enhance workflow efficiency and user comfort.

Flexibility is key in any research environment and mobile laboratory furniture systems can be beneficial as part of the laboratory design. Mobile units are designed to be relocated with minimal disruption according to workflow requirements and ideally suit the changing needs of today’s engineering laboratories. They can also be used for accommodating and transporting heavy machinery.

A flexible arrangement of mobile lab cabinets and steel framed tables connected with a daisy chained electrical system is also popular for industrial laboratory clients. This future proofed design allows for business expansion or changes in staffing levels.

Trespa TopLab Base is the recommended laboratory worktop for an engineering environment where a robust material which is scratch and wear resistance is critical.

Constructing an Engineering Lab with Specialist Gases

Specialist gases are often a crucial component in engineering processes, requiring careful consideration in their storage, distribution, and safety protocols. Building a lab equipped with gas detection systems and proper ventilation is imperative to ensure a safe working environment for researchers and staff.

Lab Construction – HVAC Requirements for Engineering

HVAC systems play a vital role in maintaining the environmental conditions necessary for engineering labs to function optimally. Proper laboratory ventilation, air quality control, and temperature regulation are essential to safeguard equipment, ensure the comfort of occupants, and prevent the build-up of harmful fumes or contaminants.

Construction of an Engineering Lab – Technical Requirements

Incorporating the right technical infrastructure and systems during the construction phase is crucial for supporting the complex needs of an engineering lab. High-speed internet connectivity, robust power supply backups, data storage solutions, and compatibility with advanced engineering software are fundamental technical requirements that can enhance the efficiency and capabilities of the lab.

Laboratory Needs for Engineering Staff

Providing engineering staff with the necessary resources and amenities is crucial for their productivity and well-being. Access to dedicated workstations, meeting rooms, breakout areas, and collaboration spaces fosters teamwork, creativity and professional growth. Additionally, investing in continuous training, professional development opportunities, and wellness programs can further support the needs of engineering staff.


“We used Klick Technology to refurbish our tired assembly and wiring area at Pandect Precision Components in High Wycombe. They were able to strip out old equipment, update our lighting, decorate, lay new floor and of course install workstations for us. Their sales department were able to knowledgably discuss what was available and what they could offer. Klick were able to tailor our workspace to exactly what we needed with suggestions and guidance on finishes and layout. The work was scheduled in for when was most suitable for us and was carried out with the minimum of fuss, on time and to budget. We will certainly be using Klick Technology again when it comes time to update the rest of our production floor and offices.”
