Once used for vibration testing of nuclear casings the laboratory forms the preparation area for spent nuclear
fuel before being plunged into pools, forming the short-term containment of dangerous material.

The intervention of additional forms extends the vocabulary of the laboratory, whilst the requirements of the
new use dictate a new, heavy construction. Thick concrete walls and lightweight aluminium roofing share
corrugations and a light absorbing tone, cloaking the building.

The buildings material is ubiquitous in line with other sheds and characteristic in its form to set it apart from
other ancillary buildings.
