Aspirations Academy Trust Science Labs


Rivers Academy London

Working in an operational school, PEC remodelled existing 1st floor classrooms into new science labs complete with new teaching and student pods (Science workstations) and smart boards.
The works were phased to allow progress with the project whilst the school remained open to staff and students alike.

The works entailed the strip out of the existing classrooms being fit out on the 1st floors, whilst on the floor below access was required to the offices and classrooms for service runs and drainage connections.
PEC installed temporary platform scaffolding to protect the classroom equipment such as computers and desks, it also provide the PEC team with access to the void in the suspended ceiling to carry out the works.

The works also included the demolition of existing walls and some structural steel works to create a larger teaching space. Mechanical & Electrical works provide the new science labs with fume cupboards and smart teaching boards.

The PEC joinery workshop manufactured the new student and teacher pods with each pod having the provision of 4 x 2 way gas taps, laboratory swan neck water tap, sink and waste. The pods were built to specification using robust materials such as Trespa Athlon worktops and d├ęcor panel base units which are all fully accessible and lockable.

The pods were brought to site and then connected to the services PEC had installed, tested and commissioned for use. Flooring and decorating works by PEC created an outstanding finish to labs which are now ready for the use and enjoyment of students and staff at Aspirations Rivers Academy.
