Orman Wing laboratories receive international recognition

Lab-works Architects won the International Laboratory Buildings category of the S-Lab 2013 International Design Awards, for their design of our Orman Wing laboratories’ refurbishment. The award recognises architectural and functional elements of laboratory design, including environmental aspects, materials used, energy efficiency and long term sustainability.

The laboratories consist of 1500 square metres of open plan cross-disciplinary spaces with specialty areas grouped together, innovative storage and safety features, and integration with the campus landscape. Air-conditioning and double glazing also mean the environmental footprint of the building is considerably reduced.

The S-Lab programme, (Safe, Successful, Sustainable Laboratories) is a UK based initiative designed to highlight best practice in laboratory design, operation and management.
