The newly finished research and teaching laboratory facilities in the lower ground of the Main Building, which complete the first phase of SEAS have been shortlisted for an S-Lab Award
under the Refurbished Laboratories category.
These awards recognise excellence in laboratory design,
operation and management in all sectors, and in laboratory-based
teaching and learning within educational institutions, that creates
improved performance whilst enhancing safety and sustainability.
The project utilised previously under-used and partly
redundant storage and workshop areas by converting them into modern multifunctional laboratory
facilities for teaching and research. The project also looked at providing an enhanced environment and experience for
students and staff, including new training facilities. These facilities incorporate a number of energy efficient, sustainable, safe, and student and
staff engaging initiatives.
