Having previous experience of working closely with Glenside, the client chose to award this turnkey teaching laboratory creation project to Glenside. The detailed scope had to be carefully planned and executed to ensure a quality outcome in a timely manner. The result is a pleasing, vibrant and yet functional space. Students can learn in a dynamic manner, moving between lab work, collaboration and presentations.

An intricate project to deliver…

Working within live space, delivery of the project in a safe and efficient manner was important.

A combination of in-hours and out-of-hours working were necessary to minimise disruption and yet minimise overall project timescales.

The combination of aesthetic and technical detailing called for a precise and well-planned approach. The results speak for themselves.

Blending the aesthetic and technical

Glenside work on many projects in technical spaces, and many projects where the look and feel is all-important.  It is rare to find the need for these coalescing in a single space.  But where the business of science meets the youthfulness of primary and secondary education, the focus on both aspects is high.  This project showcases the different disciplines of design working in a special harmony.

The project included the design and completion of a broad scope of works:

• Demolition of existing structures
• Strip out of existing services and finishes
• Partitioning, dry lining and decoration
• Suspended ceilings
• Flooring
• Heating, cooling and ventilation
• Plumbing including sensor taps
• Lighting, electrical and data
• Automatic sliding glass doors
• Decorative finishes including real moss features
• Specialist laboratory furniture
