Refurbishment of 2 Science Laboratories

Klick were helpful from the start, providing alternative design options to achieve a perfect solution to our issues along with a cost effective solution. The project centred around a bid to the Wolfson Foundation and Klick were understanding of the timescales and limits this placed on us. As soon as we received the grant funding Klick were quick to respond. The installation team were amazing, going beyond expectations to ensure we hit the deadline to complete the rooms for the new academic year. The rooms have been transformed and we are delighted with the designs of both labs which have ensured that available space has been maximised creating a better teaching and learning experience for everyone.

The brief was to improve the teaching facilities in two of the school’s labs. The school wanted to create impact in the new labs but within a tight budget. The layout needed changing so that the students would be orientated towards the front giving them greater focus on the teacher.



Our designers came up with a number of layout options to submit to the teaching staff and senior leadership team. Klick proposed a package to make the most of the available budget which included the option of the school’s site team completing the decoration.


To further reduce costs Klick refurbished the exterior of an existing fume cupboard to avoid purchasing a new one. There was a very short lead time once the funding had been confirmed but the Klick project management team worked closely with the school’s site team and their preferred flooring contractor to ensure no time was lost.


Some on site modifications were required due to the nature of the building but the project was completed on time, with minimal snagging and the staff are delighted with the end result.
