Laboratory Design Tips:

Have as much input as possible on design (both Science Technician and HOD)
Keep checking floor plans as they are updated.
Chemical resistant bench tops (very limited choice in colours).
Chemical resistant, slip proof, strong durable vinyl floors.
Stainless steel sinks with an outer lip are recommended.
Island bench stations, with storage cupboards below.
Lots of storage space.
Large Teacher’s workbench with storage and narrow cupboards behind.
‘Gratnell’ trolleys and storage system.
Lots of power points.
As for the legislations, and safety specifications, the architects should have all this information. If they do not, don’t use them!
