What we did
The labs were kept modern and clean looking by including pale vinyl floors and a light grey Velstone worktop, which is resistant to chemicals and scratches, ensuring the work surface is durable and long lasting. Equally, the EN high back chairs were chosen to tie in with furniture from each phase. These chairs are high quality and robust, ensuring longevity of the furniture. Along with the products, Pinnacle also supplied essential laboratory facilities such as sinks and taps, gas taps, bench mounted power sockets and fume cupboards for ease of use.
However, as with any long-term projects there are always issues to overcome. The biggest obstacle we faced was asbestos which is common in older buildings. If asbestos is left untreated it can cause severe damage to the respiratory system, so Pinnacle ensured extensive testing and safe removal for minimal disruption to the project.
The client has been consistently pleased with their new learning areas year on year and stated that they “make learning more fun”. We are privileged to maintain a long-lasting relationship with the Weydon Trust.
