Case Study

Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan

Lady Eleanor Holles Foshan School is a state-of-the-art school located in China, which opened its doors in 2020 as a partnership between LEH School UK and Trumptech and a member of COBIS (Council of British International Schools).

The school’s mission is to provide students with high-quality science education and to nurture the future generations of scientists.

Their new modern campus is equipped with state-of-the-art Biology, Chemistry and Physics labs, which are designed and manufactured by S+B, to meet the UK education standards.

These school laboratories provide an ideal and attractive space for students to learn through hands-on experiments, gain scientific knowledge and inspire them to achieve their professional goals.

When designing their science labs, the school’s focus was on providing innovative spaces that would spark greater interest in learning the Sciences, be practical and fit for purpose, and facilitate collaborative group work. The school wanted labs that would facilitate each individual Science discipline while also offering the flexibility for future change.

LEH has invested in modern laboratory furniture that promotes collaborative learning and open communication between students and teachers. The S+B’s SpaceStation, Saturn & Mercury, Stemline laboratory furniture systems, SpaceSaver Teaching Walls and Mobline Fume Cupboards are all designed to be functional, ergonomic, and visually appealing.

These modern laboratory furniture systems not only improve the learning experience but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of the school’s state-of-the-art science labs.

Client Testimonial

” From the moment I made first contact with S+B at the Hong Kong Learning and Teaching Expo, communication has been first class. Liam and the whole team have made the design, delivery and installation of the four laboratories and prep room straightforward – even in the middle of the covid restrictions.

S+B designs start with the needs of the students and teacher. Full thought is given to workspace, circulation and the safety of all. The design process was a real pleasure, ideas were listened to carefully, suggestions for improvement made and designs developed collaboratively. The S+B team was always polite in pushing back with any flaws in requests, but always willing (and able) to deliver a fully bespoke product.

The laboratories were designed ‘off-plan’ as construction had not commenced when the initial designs were agreed. Not only was this not an issue, but the experience and advice of the S+B engineers ensured we were able to make alterations to the building programme to aid the fitting of the laboratories.

Delivery and installation were planned to take place just as the COVID pandemic broke out. Despite restrictions on shipping, forced shutdown in the UK and a host of unforeseeable issues, Liam and the team were always willing and able to find solutions.

The quality of the finished laboratories speaks for itself. They have gathered a lot of attention locally and are helping to reimagine science teaching in the city. Giving the cutting-edge design and thoughtful manufacture and installation, I feel confident that not only will the S+B labs prove a long-lasting investment, but they will also look as welcoming in 25 years as they do now.”
