Designing an animal and veterinary lab requires a balance between ethical and science-based practices that are fundamental to the care and treatment of animals. Whether it is an animal research facility or small-animal vet, such lab design must promote the humane care of animals and quality research in spaces that enhance the relationship between vets, researchers, staff, pets, and clients. At Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods, we design animal and veterinary labs that provide for the health, safety, and well-being for both animals and humans.
As an animal lab construction company, we design lab spaces that facilitate a safe and healthy working environment for all personnel while meeting the regulations and guidelines for quality animal care and treatment. We address commonly overlooked needs such as ample storage, noise dampening, adequate space for safe animal housing, special interior finishes, waste disposal, constant and reliable air ventilation, and much more. Whether you are designing a new lab or remodeling an existing one, Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods can help you design and furnish a flexible, safe, smart, and sustainable lab that can meet the needs of the animals and human workforce today and into the future.
