Anglia Ruskin University – Faculty of Science and Technology

The recent £2 million refurbishment of Anglia Ruskin University Life Sciences laboratory in the David building was nominated for a prestigious S-Laboratory Award.
The S-Laboratory Awards recognise excellence in laboratory design, operation and management and are supported by world renowned life sciences bodies including the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Biology.

This project involved the retrofitting of teaching and office space in a 1960’s building to create new laboratory facilities, with innovative solutions to get the most out of limited space to create 21st century flexible, multi-functional teaching laboratories for a variety of sciences. It provides a high performance interactive technical space which is bright and functional. The project incorporates commercial technology including carousel storage systems to maximise the use of floor space, providing the largest, most flexible science teaching lab on the Cambridge campus.

With a capacity of 80 students the laboratory features a number of innovative space saving and technological solutions including a Kardex Carousel storage system to maximise the use of floor space, interactive teaching technology and a large equipment preparations area.
