Science laboratories

School science laboratory design

We understand that your school science laboratories are hugely important to the ongoing success of your STEM/STEAM strategy.


Whether you’re looking to create a space with wow factor and impact, encourage more students to take up science, or accommodate more than just science lessons, our design process is detailed and inspirational, as well as being relevant to the needs of today’s learners.

Our school science labs are designed and built to suit your unique needs, requirements and challenges. We create science laboratories for all ages and stages, and will collaborate closely with your school to ensure the finished project is a space you can be proud of.

Whilst aesthetics and design are important, our experienced designers will pay attention to all aspects of your space:

  • Plumbing and water supply
  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and fume control
  • Fixed furniture
  • Loose furniture and seating
  • Lighting and blackout requirements
  • Acoustics
  • Flooring and other finishes
  • Power and data
  • Structural changes
  • Teachingwall and storage
  • Windows, doors and partitioning
  • And more…

Building futures through STEM

There is a huge shortfall of talent in STEM-related employment sectors, meaning extensive opportunity for students and schools alike. Your STEM strategy should be holistic and structural, promoting hands-on engagement and involving students through real-life learning.

STEM is certainly more than a series of subjects as the acronym suggests. STEM should be seen as a process by which we change the hearts and minds of students so they are aware of their opportunities, engaging them with the real world.

STEM/STEAM – Building the culture

Change must happen at system and community level, leading to an aligned and cohesive pathway for your students. Employers are looking for students that have developed a STEM knowledge-base, as well as key ‘soft skills’ such as resilience, team-work and creativity.

Our specialist STEM consultants will help you bring about the right culture in your school, fostering a more inspirational approach to learning.

Facilitating STEM in your infrastructure

Your learning environment is crucial to the success of your STEM pathway. Multi-use spaces, including science laboratories, encourage cross-curricular discovery. Spaces to tinker and experiment will help build the ‘maker mentality’ and encourage hands-on, real life learning.

We’ll help you design, build and develop a user-centred school environment suited to the needs of today’s learners.

We’re specialists at creating stunning learning environments. We understand that a traditional science laboratory may not necessarily suit the needs of today’s learners. We work with your school to come up with the optimum design solution that will enhance the learning journey, and also accommodate digital technology and modern learning styles. From your prep room to your storage drawers, everything is considered to ensure the best project outcome.

Science spaces for everyone

Students and teachers alike will prove the benefits of well designed school science labs. You school laboratories need not be dark uninviting spaces, but can be light and inspirational, encouraging students to embrace learning.

Lessons worth arriving for

Inspire and enthuse your students throughout every science lesson. A well-designed school science lab can promote subject take-up and improve results, helping you gain student interest and establish a science-led culture within your school.

Safety is a top priority

Your science labs need to be safe spaces. Well designed school science laboratories should have ample storage, allowing you to create a clutter-free zone. Clear work surfaces and easy access to services such as gas and water help enhance the overall learning experience, minimising risk and danger.

Our project and design process


Project brief


Budget costings

Project delivery


We find out as much information about your project and your school as possible. The more research and information we can gather beforehand, the more successful the outcome of your project will be.

Once we’ve discussed all the options, we move onto creating a project brief, ensuring that the requirements of every stakeholder are carefully considered.

From the science laboratory refurbishment project brief, we will develop your design, creating 2d plans and 3d visualisations to help you visualise the space.

We fully appreciate the importance of financial control  so we’ll ensure your school science lab project fits within your budget, without sacrificing on quality or design.

Our experienced project managers are a crucial part of our team. We will get the job done on time and within budget, communicating closely throughout the project to ensure you’re always aware of what is going on in your space.

We build long-term relationships with our clients. Once the project is complete, we’ve only just begun. That’s why our clients return time after time.
