Life Sciences & Environment Laboratories

Lancaster University has invested in state-of-the-art teaching laboratories for Biomedical and Life Sciences (BLS) and the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC).

Completed in March 2015, the two super labs house a maximum capacity of 216 students across two floors, incorporating preparatory rooms and general stores. Both labs have been designed to be easily subdivided, allowing multiple disciplines to use the laboratories simultaneously.

The construction is aiming to achieve BREEAM Excellence rating and follows a low energy strategy which uses renewable energy as the last part of an approach to energy efficiency, rather than off-setting an inefficient design.

Additionally, the building provides access for all throughout and every effort has been made to provide level access at Ground and First Floor. This building links into the principle horizontal and vertical circulation routes of the LEC building.
