Our Projects: Carshalton High School for Girls, New Science Labs
Synergy is delighted to have supported the Girls’ Learning Trust with the installation of two new science labs at Carshalton High School for Girls.
Previously used for Design & Technology, the classrooms were fairly crowded with equipment needed for these lessons. Now, the spaces have been completely transformed into bright, shiny state-of-the-art science labs.
The project involved working with lab furniture specialists to deliver a bespoke layout and design that met the school’s requirements. High benches and stools centre around fixed pods around the room. Gas, electrical and water services are provided via the pods, which allow for free-flowing practical experiments to be conducted around the room. A dedicated bag drop area is provided to keep the practical room safe when in use.
The creation of labs within the existing space involved the coordination of various M&E works alongside structural engineers where some internal re-configuration was required.
To finish the room, a bespoke “teacher wall” has been created at the front of the room. This provides ample storage for the teaching material and a full height sliding whiteboard covers a fully connected smart screen to aid teaching and learning.
The project team worked efficiently to deliver the works on time and within budget over the summer holiday period, ready for the students in September. It was a delight to provide Project Management, Building Surveying and Cost Consultancy services on this project.
