Supplying Furniture For The Technology Centre

A new Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Technologies Centre, 10,000 m2 in total size, was established. To equip it with fully functioning laboratories, LABOCHEMA manufactured and installed lab furniture in compliance with the EU requirements.

Desks and fume hoods have integrated access sockets so that the equipment is convenient to operate. Air flow monitoring systems were installed in the fume hoods in order to create a safe working environment.

LABOCHEMA manufactured and installed 82 fume hoods, 270 lab desks, 750 various cabinets and shelving units, 860 lab chairs and various other furniture. Both the scientists and the students are now provided with all possibilities to study and perform scientific research in a safe and convenient environment.

There are two types of laboratories – the teaching ones, designed for students and their lab activities, and the scientific ones, designed for scientists to work in. When furnishing the teaching labs, we usually include to our offer central tables for students to sit around. Fume hoods and equipment tables are also installed there. Scientific laboratories are custom-built according to the needs of the scientists and the types of research to be carried out there.

furn_mozaika-2

We provide fume hoods, central and wall tables and other classic laboratory furniture. For the researchers in specialised centres (i.e. radiation research) we manufacture custom-built furniture solutions to accommodate that specific research.

From Idea to Implementation

Furnishing the laboratory is not as simple as it might appear at the first glance. There are a lot of aspects to consider. Perhaps most importantly, the staff must be assured that the laboratory was designed to ensure their safety, and the furniture with different engineering solutions is there to enhance their efforts. LABOCHEMA offers a turnkey solution to build you a fully operational laboratory. The standard process of laboratory installation is described below. It may take from 2 to 24 months depending on the difficulty of a project.

1

Plan research tasks

The very first step is to come up with a detailed plan of any types of research to be performed in the laboratory. This will provide deep insight into the laboratory project, help identify necessary working stations, and optimize ergonomics of the laboratory.

 

2

Prepare layout

The next step is careful and detailed planning. Creating the layout of laboratory furniture includes more than simply arranging where the desks will be placed. It must also combine any engineering systems integrated to them. Furniture supplier, engineering designer and the end-user must work together during this step.

 

3

Verify accordance with applicable law and regulation

Planning must meet international and national laws, safety norms and recommendations, e.g. EN 14056. Laboratory furniture must be of high quality, certified according to the EN norms and comply with low energy consumption regulations. Sufficient labor safety equipment, such as safety showers and fire distinguishers, must be supplied. Engineering connections must be planned in the correct locations for the appropriate furniture. The chosen materials and surfaces must be suitable for potentially hazardous laboratory environment.

 

4

Preparation of laboratory space

When the prepared plans satisfy the needs of the end-user, the construction or reconstruction of the laboratory may start. It is essential for the engineering suppliers to work strictly according to the confirmed design. The end-user and the furniture supplier should observe the quality of works during the construction in order to avoid future problems.

 

5

Furniture installation

The furniture should only be delivered and assembled when all the construction works are complete. If other works are still ongoing, it may raise the risk of damaging it. After all the furniture has been assembled and connected to the appropriate engineering points, it must be inspected. All systems must be checked against the confirmed project. Air extraction in the fume hoods must be strong enough for safe work; there must be no leaks in gas and water systems. Only when everything has been thoroughly inspected and confirmed to be safe for work, the personnel may start using the area.

 

6

Ensuring and maintaining safe working conditions

Even when everything has been installed and is working properly, furniture systems still require regular maintenance. It is necessary to check whether the fume hoods are still extracting the right volume of air, the safety cabinets are locking properly, all safety showers working, and lot of other issues. Only careful planning, high quality furniture and engineering equipment, and always keeping laboratory in good condition may guarantee safe and comfortable work for your employees and protect the environment.
