Harrow College is the largest college in the London Borough of Harrow. Harrow College opened in 1999 following a merger of two former local colleges. More than 2,500 full-time and 7,000 part-time students join Harrow College for sixth form and adult courses. The College thrives upon the delivery of academic and vocational courses.
Harrow College Turnkey Project
Science is a very popular area of study at Harrow and their students have high achievement rates. The students benefit from fully equipped science labs at the Harrow on the Hill and Harrow Weald campuses for Biology, Chemistry and Physics courses. In 2014 Harrow College completed the replacement of nine science laboratories across both campuses as part of a £1.5million investment.
A turnkey refurbishment of two laboratories and a prep room was carried our for Harrow College. Alongside the classrooms, refurbishment of additional store room and storage furniture in the corridors was also provided as part of the project.
This was an extensive program of works which included full strip out of existing facilities, building works to the rooms and a new ceiling. All walls and areas were made good prior to decoration and installation of new flooring.
The college wanted a modern yet traditional look at the same time, the furniture was produced in a maple melamine finish to give an appearance of a more traditional wood finish and the worktops were produced using laboratory grade Trespa TopLab Base 16mm. The chosen layout for the classrooms was the science classroom wing system from InterFocus.
