How Waterloo Can Help You With Your Science & Education Project


From schools and universities to scientific research facilities, Waterloo Air Products PLC will help architects, specifiers and contractors to design effective, good-looking air movement systems.

Science and education are amongst Britain’s most successful exports, so it’s important that buildings where teaching and research takes place have a high quality air flow to fuel the ground-breaking ideas of the future.

At the same time, to attract the brightest minds from around the world to study and work in British institutions, modern science and education establishments are designed with stunning, inspirational aesthetics.

Waterloo has extensive experience of working with architects, specifiers and contractors to combine form and function. Our HVAC systems for education and science are tailored to the specific performance requirements of every room, but also integrated with the architectural vision for the building as a whole.

Supporting Architects With HVAC Systems For Education And Science

We are committed to a collaborative approach to building design. We work with partners across the supply chain to select the right products to meet the functional and aesthetic needs of the school, university or science facility.

As designs evolve, we provide ongoing advice and support to make sure that the architects’ vision is achieved while still reflecting any changes that affect air movement in the building.

The control of air flow is critical in scientific research. Not only does it provide a comfortable working environment for those in the labs, but it is essential to protect the work of scientists from contamination. We understand the complexities and sensitivities involved and will provide expert guidance throughout the project, while still meeting the architects’ brief for bold aesthetic design.

Choosing The Right HVAC Systems For Schools, Universities And Laboratories

Our extensive range of grilles and diffusers provides real flexibility for architects to choose from. However, if standard products are not suitable for the specific needs of the project, our in-house design team will create bespoke air terminal devices that are perfectly matched on a room by room basis.

Once the right air terminal devices are chosen, we can enhance our HVAC systems for education and science with a variety of architectural finishes, including colours, graphics and other decorative effects.
