1 Architectural Services Department HKSAR Laboratory Design for Secondary Schools

2 Architectural Services Department Objective in Designing Laboratories To design well serviced and equipped laboratories in an environment which is conclusive to learning

3 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations General Arrangement Biology The following laboratories are normally found in a standard secondary school Chemistry Physics Integrated Sciences

4 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations General Arrangement

5 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations General Arrangement Laboratories with adjacent preparation rooms Biology Laboratory Chemistry Laboratory Physics Laboratory Integrated Science Laboratory

6 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Services Lighting lux at worktop level

7 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Services Ventilation Mechanical Extract (10 air change per hour) Ceiling Fans Air Conditioning Natural Ventilation

8 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Services Utility Services Water Electricity Gas Sink

9 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Fitted Furniture

10 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Proprietary Furniture The proprietary laboratory furniture has the following advantages: Proven material, good chemical and moisture resistance Modular sizes for easy replacement and addition Factory produced, consistent quality

11 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Furniture Materials Laboratory furniture manufactured from high quality MR MDF (moisture resistance medium density fibre board), laminated and edge banded.

12 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Worktops High Pressure Laminates w ith phenolic resin laminate core Easily machined requiring no edging Allowing coved upstands for easier cleaning Acid resistant for chemicals used in schools

13 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Storage Requirements Large range of sizes Glass Fronted Security Signage and identification of contents Chemical storage

14 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Fume Cupboards Based on recommendations in Fume Cupboards in Schools U.K.Dept for Education & Employment

15 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Fume Cupboards Key Features Glass side panels to enable visibility from all sides of the fume cupboard. Worktops are of chemical resistant Trespa. All glass is 6mm toughened safety glass. Each fume cupboard is provided with 1xtwin RCB protected power socket, cold water and town gas supply.

16 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Fume Cupboards Key Features A constant face velocity of 0.4m/s +/- 30% is maintained at sash opening of 400mm high.

17 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Safety Preventive Safety Measures Use of fume cupboards Purpose designed chemical and chemical waste storage

18 Architectural Services Department Design Considerations Safety Reactive Safety Measures Eye wash facilities First Aid Fire extinguishers

19 Architectural Services Department Conclusion Good and efficient design can only be achieved with an accurate description of requirements The feedback and comments of the users is essential for achieving good design
