New Laser Laboratory Design and Build for Imperial College
Quest Interiors worked with the client team from RIBA Stage C to co-ordinate and deliver a new Laser Laboratory within the Blackett Building.
The Extreme Physics Laboratory, situated in the basement of the Blackett Building is a high quality space dedicated to producing extreme pressures, densities and temperatures in materials for a variety of novel research purposes with £1M funding by Imperial College.
The refurbishment generated four new areas; a new mezzanine Laser laboratory, a dedicated high bay and crane area, a laser target area and a capacitor room.
Construction commenced in the summer of the London Olympics 2012 and was completed on programme prior to the commencement of the autumn 2012 term. The timely completion of the programme prior to the start of the autumn student term was a key factor as the laboratory is situated directly below and adjacent student lecture theatres.
Quest Interiors completed the project on time and within budget, ready for the start of the new term. To find out more about this project, download the case study here.
