Designed by CPMG Architects and constructed as part of a major campus investment by the University of Loughborough, the STEMlab scheme provides new engineering, physics, chemistry and bio laboratories for students.

The project involved the installation of more than three kilometres of cable management, including Uniklip cable tray, Easy Connect cable basket and cable trunking. The primary mains cabling was installed using Unitrunk’s single compartment trunking, while triple compartment trunking for lighting, power and low voltage cabling was laid within the screed, together with floor boxes to ensure full distribution at low level without reducing floor-to-ceiling heights.

The electrical installation was delivered by electrical contractor, Electract.

Richard Hogg from Electract said: “Unitrunk’s cable management systems have been designed to enable rapid installation without the need for tools or nuts and bolts, which helped us reduce installation times by around a third, ensuring we were able to deliver the project within the University’s business critical deadlines and enable fit-out to commence on time.”
