Vision West Nottinghamshire College-Laboratory refurbishment

Full turnkey laboratory refurbishment

A state-of-the-art laboratory marks a new era for the college in their quest to transform the learning environment and provide inspirational facilities for students. The college provides a whole range of courses for up to 20,000 students and businesses every year. Being one of the largest providers of apprenticeships with a reputation for high standards, an experienced design, manufacture and install team was needed to complete the project.

"Innova has delivered an inspirational space which is set to inspire our future generation of learners"

Tom Stevens, Executive Director for Capital Projects & Estates

The Brief

Our brief was to create a state-of-the-art laboratory designed to inspire learning whilst maximizing the use of space.

The Solution

Working closely with the college, Innova provided a full turnkey solution (including M&E works) during term time with minimum disruption to the staff and students. The new stylish laboratory included Innova’s Hot Corner layout which is designed to provide shorter lines of communication and a more collaborative approach to learning. As opposed to the traditional row upon row layout of benches, the Hot Corner design creates a more versatile room, addressing the need to provide both a working classroom and practical laboratory within the same space.

In addition Velstone worktops provide a durable and stain-resistant surface ideal for science laboratories. Combined with an interactive TV, ergonomic seating, sinks and fume cupboards – the new laboratory at Vision West is equipped for the future of learning.

What difference does a new classroom make?

That’s what we’ve been asking staff and students as we return to visit some of the colleges we’ve previously worked with.

Take a look at the video to see how a brand new electronics lab has increased student engagement – and made teaching a whole lot easier at Vision West Nottinghamshire College in Mansfield, North Nottinghamshire.

Staff and students are delighted with the finished result and have recently appointed Innova to transform other rooms at  the college including science labs, electronics, engineering and technology.
