Methodology – How we do it series: Design

S+B offer a bespoke laboratory design service to meet unique challenges, whether that is in your overall use of the space in your premises or developing individual items of furniture and storage to meet your needs.

A bespoke laboratory interior naturally performs more efficiently, as every space can be efficiently utilised, appropriate storage can be located alongside corresponding equipment and instrumentation, and modular design can allow for easy reconfiguration later.

Our bespoke laboratory furniture is designed, developed and produced at our Manchester facility to the highest standards, with both cost and quality in mind at all times, and we welcome all enquiries.

Why choose S+B?

We have over 50 years of experience in manufacturing and installing fume cupboards and laboratory furniture, having supplied some of the most prestigious laboratory refurbishments both in the UK and worldwide.

Our AutoCAD, Revit, IMOS and Virtual Worlds design software capabilities allow us to present you with 2D drawings and 3D visualisations, showing the final result prior to committing to manufacture and install.

Our experienced consultants and designers will take into consideration health and safety regulations and BS EN ISO standards, working alongside other traders and contractors to supply bespoke laboratory solutions.

Good design combines performance with aesthetics and ergonomics, and S+B have built a reputation on providing laboratories which function to the highest standard as well as having a contemporary appearance and are easy and intuitive for personnel to use.

Our track record speaks for itself, and we have an extensive list of case studies available online and on request, including the opportunity to arrange a visit to a third-party site so you can see our previous bespoke laboratory designs, installed and in use.
