Klick were appointed to carry out a full refurbishment of the biology department. Their designers suggested an interesting use of colour and offered a number of layout options. Work commenced at half term and continued through the summer term on an agreed rolling programme, avoiding disruption to staff or students. Their site staff were professional and any issues were quickly addressed. We are delighted with our smart new labs and I would have no hesitation in recommending Klick to other schools.

The biology lab design needed to have the same look and feel as the school’s existing laboratories in order to create cohesion between the three scientific disciplines. The school requested a three-staged science laboratory refurbishment programme, allowing work to progress during term time without disruption to the timetable.
The Klick design team created layouts that worked for the space available. Cranked benching was used where space allowed, however, one lab was smaller than the others and as a result straight island benches were installed. Contrast walls, door edging, end panels and trays all add touches of colour to the rooms, making them more individual.
The biology labs have large sinks situated around the perimeter which are used for washing up after experiments. Glass fronted wall cabinets were also specified for the storage of specimens.
The school took advantage of our term time discount. The majority of the more disruptive work was completed during the students’ half term and then the installation continued on through term time. Our fitters liaised with the site staff and minimised disruption to staff and students.
