Science & Computer Labs
Designing special use education facilities like science labs can challenge the collective planning skills and creativity of both educators and design professionals. Small schools may require a more multipurpose building approach while a higher education environment might need a custom designed facility for a specific program. In either case, the amount of space generally required for a science lab will significantly exceed the amount of square footage necessary for a standard classroom. For this reason the proper design of a science lab must allow for the right collaboration and teamwork amongst the students while also facilitating the interaction with the instructor. The lab should provide a work environment in which the practical applications of the instruction and the skills that are practiced can be accomplished effectively and safely. At Ramtech, we've acquired the right kind of knowledge and experience in meeting these kinds of needs. We do it by offering standard floor plan designs or developing custom, cost-effective layouts with the required plumbing and gas lines and other infrastructure that meet a wide variety of science lab facility requirements.
There are also many choices to make and options to consider when developing layouts and construction alternatives for computer labs. Whether the environment is for student access to the software necessary to complete their coursework, or for instruction on use, programming, or technical training, simply filling a standard open classroom with the hardware that fits the room isn't the answer. By employing a thoughtful approach to the design of the facility based on the equipment, furniture, and space available will dictate the performance of the lab while increasing the users' satisfaction. Proper planning will also assist in making sure the infrastructure requirements for the future expansion and upgrades to the equipment are also in place. Ramtech's solid track record in designing and constructing facilities that integrate IT networks, computer flooring, SMART technologies, mobile learning, audiovisual equipment, and other interactive systems assures you that our traditional modular construction approach to computer labs will always allow for form to follow function.
