Project Overview:

Tudor Grange called us in with unique challenge, to install fully functioning laboratories for 30 pupils complete with practical science areas, within compact and narrow. Our design team relish a challenge, and certainly rose to the occasion!

After in depth consultation with the head of science, the school leadership team and the Trust Estates team, we put forward a unique design that helped save space whilst providing spacious areas for practical experiments. Our design was given the rubber stamp by the head of science, who loved the way we combined practical demo areas with fixed benching peninsulas. The installation was carried out in within a tight timescale of two weeks, with both labs plus a small prep room completed in time for the reopening in early September!

The overall look of the finished labs is classical yet bright, combining light speckled tops with dark wood panels and light wood stools.

We needed somebody to create lab spaces that were both modern and smart, to be in keeping with our mission to provide a high quality educational experience for our students. We also needed some clever footwork with space planning, to provide seating for 30 students plus practical science space, within long narrow footprints. By combining dark laminates, light speckled tops and light wood stools - and seating peninsulas that incorporate gas taps and power sockets, John Knights hit the nail on the head! The students and teachers are delighted with their smart new labs, we will definitely consider John Knights next time we are fitting out science labs.
