Furniture Installation, Biology Department

University of York

Klick were selected by Interserve to supply the laboratory furniture for the project at The University of York. Initially they were proactive with providing information during the design phase, sourcing special colours and providing samples. Their package was cost effective. They also proved to be reliable and flexible in adapting their programme to react to site conditions. They developed a good working relationship with our site team, remaining supportive and professional throughout the project, dealing with any snagging issues promptly...... I would be happy to recommend them to others.

PROJECT BRIEF

The Department of Biology was looking for laboratories to inspire bioscience students to become confident, collaborative, adaptable and independent graduates. The brief was to come up with a cost effective solution, allowing each department to reflect their individual identity whilst facilitating the smooth running of the workspace as a whole.

 

THE RESULTS

Klick were appointed by Interserve, following a competitive tender process, having agreed a discounted package for installation prior to the peak summer holiday period. The challenge was to inject life into the rooms, creating an individual identity for each department. Klick’s design team worked to interpret the brief and source special door colours to match the university’s scheme.

 

The installation phase needed careful planning and collaboration with Interserve’s site team. The project required multiple deliveries to site and distribution of the furniture to upper levels, however Klick progressed efficiently through the rooms maintaining programme and adapting to site conditions. Positive communication was key throughout the project which helped to keep snags to a minimum. The end result is an impressive suite of colourful and functional laboratories suitable for 21st century learning.
