Award winning chemistry laboratory

Not only is the building new and improved, our Chemistry labs recently won a top award for international design at the recent S-Lab Award ceremony in London.

The chemistry laboratory refurbishment is a collaborative effort between specialist laboratory architects Lab-works Architecture, in association with BECA and our University project team.  

The undergraduate teaching laboratories are in use by students and their tutors.

"Beyond the safety features the other aspect that really stands out to me is the aesthetic of the lab, which is beautiful. It's very light, lots of white, really adds to the visual nature of the space..very streamlined." Says laboratory Manager David Weir , "It really adds to the learning experience that the students have."

The labs won the S-Lab Refurbished Laboratory Award.  Says Ken Collins, Architect and Project Manager from Lab-works, "It’s good for this (project) to be recognised internationally, and be benchmarked against overseas projects."
