Ingleton Wood’s involvement in the laboratory sector has consistently grown over recent years. Strongly focused on communication with lab end users and key stakeholders, our design process centres on the functionality of space. By forming an understanding of the macro and micro spatial needs, we can review how to best create efficient workflows for staff whilst considering future growth and flexibility.
Collectively across the Practice, Ingleton Wood’s laboratory design experience ranges from clean rooms, pathology labs, healthcare and medical labs through to commercial R&D spaces. We carry out conceptual space planning and feasibility studies and then deliver the projects on site with contractors for occupation by the lab users.
Laboratory design revolves around the functionality requirements of the space, which in turn informs the Architectural design, Building Services strategy, and structural approach. Through experience, we translate these functions and work with the end users to develop the design – ensuring compliance with the applicable regulations. This extends to selection and specification of finishes, lab benching, power and service connections, circulation routes and health & safety equipment.
On every lab project, a vital design tool the development and maintenance of up-to-date and comprehensive Equipment Schedules. These are key to our lab design work and referred to continually by all disciplines for the duration of the project. They also aid communication with lab users and facilities teams to understand and quantify space requirements and how to future proof areas.
We understand confidentiality in relation to lab design, it is therefore difficult for us to share specific details about our projects. We work on some the Country’s leading science and research parks in association with prominent universities, healthcare establishments and commercial organisations. Relationships with existing clients are proven through repeat business.
With our services team, collaborative working is particularly relevant for large scale leisure facilities and sports halls where the complex servicing requirements can be carefully integrated within the design process. Our Interior Design department can provide a complete package including furniture, fabrics, graphics and branding.
We provide professional services such as building survey reports/ Technical Due Diligence (TDD) relating to the purchase of single or multiple leisure properties, as well as advice on planned maintenance and building pathology.
