MPS (Mathematics and Physical Science) - New Teaching Laboratory

JG&JR Langridge were instructed to carry out the remodeling and refurbishment of 5th floor teaching spaces into modern laboratory spaces for the Physics & Astronomy Department. Work consisted of structural alterations, full data & electrical installations, renewal of finishes and the co-ordination of laboratory furniture and fixtures.

JG&JR Langridge successfully undertook this important project for the University of Sussex during the summer of 2012, sticking to a tight programme within a busy building. The works were of a high standard and progressed without fuss. Issues were overcome as they arose and flexibility was applied where necessary. The project was very successful and the school is still very happy with their new space. JG&JR Langridge proved to be a confident and competent contractor.

Electrical, mechanical, Cat5e data cabling, audio visual, aircon, lighting, access control and laboratory furniture all came together to create an excellent modern Physics Laboratory!
