Laboratory Refurbishment – Project Management for Schools

From the initial consultation to the final handover, we co-ordinate all aspects of the fit out and prioritise precise project management to enable our clients to focus on their daily activities without interruption. Our experienced and dedicated team ensures that design integrity is maintained, costs are controlled, and the finished project meets our exacting standards.

“The installation team were helpful with keeping us informed of key dates and working out how to best manage activities for the term time installation. As with any project in an old school building there were a few surprises along the way but these were well managed and the project finished ahead of schedule.”
Chris Baker – Estates Manager, King Edward VI College, Stourbridge

Critical Dates for a School Laboratory Refurbishment

With back-to-back summer projects advanced planning and scheduling is critical.

This schedule allows for all stages to be followed in a timely manner ensuring sufficient time to focus on all the details to achieve a smooth installation programme for a summer delivery.

Installation Process for Laboratory Refurbishments

A crucial aspect of our furniture installation projects is adherence to a set of structured project procedures. Upon receiving the order, we meticulously check the client’s requirements, visit the site for measurements, and finalise the layout in collaboration with the client. Detailed drawings and schedules ensure alignment among all parties involved, paving the way for a seamless execution of the project.

Typical Programme for a School Refurbishment

  • Removal of existing furniture & redundant services
  • Remodelling of the room, partitioning & small building works
  • Installation of new plumbing & electrical services including extension of supply
  • New decoration, flooring & lighting
  • Supply & installation of furniture & worktops
  • Installation of Gas safety system with CO2 monitor
  • Final connections, commissioning and certification of all works

Once the drawings and schedules are signed off and prior to ordering any materials, we produce an agreed programme of works for the project in conjunction with the client.

Quality Control and Assurance for Science Lab Fit Outs

Quality is paramount for all our school projects and we maintain stringent standards to uphold excellence. From ensuring that our team members have the necessary training and qualifications to complying with health and safety regulations, we prioritise quality at every stage of the refurbishment process. As part of the process a health and safety assessment is carried out for each project and site specific RAMS are produced.
Our commitment to quality is further reinforced by our accreditations and certifications, including ISO 9001:2015, Constructionline, CHAS and Safe Contractor.

Lab Refurbishments – Post-Installation Support & Guarantees

After completing the project, our team conducts a thorough project handover, providing Operations and Maintenance documentation for the client’s site manager. Any outstanding snagging items are promptly addressed and we offer guarantees on our furniture and mechanical/electrical services, ensuring long-term satisfaction and peace of mind for our clients.
