Infographic: Five Key Elements For A Successful Laboratory Design

Successful laboratories require proper planning and collaboration between the design teams and the lab users.


Change is the only constant. As research methods and priorities keep changing, laboratories must allow for flexibility in design without costly modifications.


Labs are energy guzzlers due to stringent safety and health requirements. Lab designs should incorporate high-efficient and low-energy options from the beginning.


Depending on the industry, the choice of laboratory equipment should complement the nature of research. Care must be exercised for the choice and placement of equipment with the lab.


When deciding the case works & furniture for the lab, planners should factor in adaptable furniture to accommodate future changes with ease. The material of construction and safety ratings should be given due weightage.


Newer digital technologies are enabling successful research and unhindered lab operations. From an early stage lab designs should factor in technology integration into lab operations.
