Klick went through a comprehensive design process when reviewing the school science lab furniture requirements for our 2 new labs. Their consultants were excellent in developing different designs for each lab which were dictated by staff preference and subject requirement. The installation ran like clockwork and the school are delighted, having worked so hard to gain funding, to finally realise our vision with well designed, high quality science labs.

The school were looking for laboratories with a flexible design, which would allow teachers to reconfigure the lab furniture according to their teaching preferences. The aim was to create an engaging environment to enhance practical work and group learning for pupils.
After a comprehensive design process, the school chose to have loose tables in the centre of both labs, alongside different fixed furniture to suit the function of each laboratory. In one lab, 8 square service pods with water, gas and electrical sockets were installed around the perimeter to facilitate practical experiments.
The school wanted the second laboratory to be orientated towards Chemistry. The individual service bollards were arranged in two rows and fitted with triple taps, which are more flexible for chemistry experiments where water is required.
Details such as graphite grey doors, window frames and flooring, with a blue contrast edging on cupboards, led to a smart design statement for the labs. Ample storage in the fixed units added to the functionality of the labs.
Overall, the school were really happy with the design and refurbishment process which produced two smart and adaptable labs which perfectly suited their needs.
