Your Laboratory Fit-Out: 'How Much It Will Really Cost'
In this article we focus on how difficult it can be to identify the 'true cost' of a new facility, & how this is interwoven with the process used for choosing the right building.
We outline the factors to consider to ensure the real costs are established, & the right building option chosen.
What is a Clean Room?
What is a clean room? Why are they important? How are they classified?
We answer these questions & more.
Need to Create a New Laboratory?
If you are planning to create a new laboratory, choosing the right building option for your current and future needs is crucial.
What different building types would you consider?
Our Director Derek Jones provides you with 3 options with their pros and cons.
Design Considerations for Biosafety in Labs
Biosafety in labs.
If you are planning to fit-out or refurbish a Microbiology or Biomedical laboratory, we have compiled some key considerations to confirm at the design phase. Presented by Florida Educational Facilities Planners’ Association, Inc. (FEFPA). These are based on Facility Design and Construction principles of biosafety.
Laboratory Design Good Practice Principles
S-Lab is a not for profit initiative that is primarily funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), a UK government agency that provides funding to public universities. It grew out of earlier work on energy efficiency within laboratories but has now become a broader initiative covering all aspects of laboratory design, management, operation and use. Its mission now is to support improvements in the efficiency and effectiveness of laboratories, and especially in universities and research institutes.
S-Lab and AUDE (Association of University Directors of Estates) has produced Laboratory Design Good Practice Principles to distil lessons from the many excellent past projects so that they can be applied more broadly. It also seeks to ameliorate some of the issues which have occurred in less successful projects, and to respond to growing financial and other pressures on the sector, and the consequent need to make new projects even leaner in design and operation.
Bulb Interiors are specialists in interior fit-outs and refurbishments of laboratories and offices and would like to share this valuable knowledge.
