Medical Research Laboratory Needs a Different Kind of Furniture
A Veteran’s Affairs medical research laboratory needed their state-of-the-art machinery and healthcare technology be integrated with a new furniture and cabinet system. The laboratory chose to use modular casework stations throughout the facility instead of traditional built-in millwork for the project.
Modular Casework Stations are a Flexible and Durable Solution
Besides the fact that modular casework can be reconfigured and relocated without costly construction, the lab selected casework because it provided a mixture of both durable and aesthetically pleasing configurations that satisfied their work environment needs.
As with most government facilities, space was limited. To optimize the minimal lab space, a specially designed modular casework station solutions were installed. The flexibility of both the finishing and accessory options ensured that the laboratory would get everything they needed within the small space.

Features of the Specially Designed Modular Casework Stations
The modular casework stations had many different features. Powder coated steel cabinets with stainless steel fronts occupy the base of the stations. The stainless steel ensures that the stations will be easy to clean and won’t be damaged by hazardous materials. The surfaces applied to the modular casework stations are also made of a chemical resistant material for extra resilience.
The laboratory’s workflow required easily accessible storage, so pass-thru walls were incorporated within the modular casework stations in addition to multiple shelves. Another added feature was the design of both standing and sitting height work surfaces within the same modular casework station.
The incorporation of gas lines, data lines, and electrical wiring components supported the multifunctional use of each the modular casework stations. The most innovative feature of this design was the non-conventional use of wire drawer pulls as shelf lips that provided organization and safety of overhead lab materials. Due to the nature of the work and the limited interior space, the modular casework stations were able to satisfy all aspects of the lab’s workflow optimization needs.
