The HAN, Hogeschool Arnhem & Nijmegen, searches daily with students for smart solutions for the future with research and education. In order to continue facilitating this properly, INTOS was asked to redesign several laboratory spaces totalling 400 m2 by refurbishing them.
With the great diversity of research within HAN being carried out by a diverse group of people (from students to lecturers and researchers), it was important to facilitate this diversity in the best possible way through the design of the lab spaces. And also in a sustainable way: with smart, clean and social solutions. To come up with good sustainable ideas, the HAN had already started an exploratory process with companies in the region. INTOS had to tie in with this. Whereas for some rooms the need was to completely renew the lab furnishings. Other rooms needed to be modernised and redecorated.
Following on from the preparatory work the HAN had already carried out with companies from the region, we advised on the optimal and sustainable design of the intensively used laboratory spaces.
Storage cabinets, laboratory tables and fume cupboards with matching media columns and air bridges were installed in the newly furnished lab areas. All varying per laboratory in structure, layout and use of materials, so that it matched the needs of the users. For the lab areas that needed modernisation, we took care of the replacement of parts such as worktops and placed the furniture in a new arrangement, based on the idea of our Green lab service. We also coordinated the diverse installation work from compressed air taps, nitrogen taps, demineralised water taps to gas taps.
Delano Post, project manager INTOS: "Despite the challenge of the huge number of installers on site at the same time, we can look back on a successful final result. Through appropriate reuse of existing furniture and elements, sustainability was again nicely secured in the execution of this project. The new fume cupboards have increased the safety of all users. The interior is again suitable for intensive use."
