Case Study

Sir Robert Aitken Building

This laboratory refurbishment project was completed within the ‘’Robert Aitken Institute for Clinical Research. The scope of works was to create a single, large teaching and research laboratory in the existing building to update and improve the existing facilities, this project was one of refurbishment schemes across the campus.

S+B UK were approached by Sheppard Robson architects to help develop the scheme, which required mixture of fixed and suspended cabinetry, to ensure complete flexibility of storage and the potential to increase capacity in the future. With this in mind, the ‘Exemplaire C-frame’ system was specified, this system allows suspended storage to be fixed via suspension clips, allowing the units to slide laterally and be removed and relocated if required.

The client team were extremely happy with the level of quality delivered, so much so that the same specification was prepared for the new ‘Central Teaching Labs’ building. This is a much larger installation, with a furniture value of £450,000 and is due for completion in April 2018.
