A state-of-the-art design to cater to growing forensic needs
Forensic Science Laboratory is the sole Laboratory in the country providing essential forensic science services at the national level to the Police, the Judiciary and others, as required. In 2000, FSL became an autonomous organization under the aegis of the Prime Minister’s Office, Home Affairs Division and was relocated to the National Laboratory Complex, Reduit where it is currently based. The evolution of DNA evidence has created a new demand for workspace within the lab, as well as a new evidential requirement to keep workstreams apart, to prevent contamination. The entrance of the building is through a glass façade framed by concrete. This allows adequate light to the interiors. To protect from excessive heat gain, the south façade has a projected frame with horizontal louvers.
