Get a floor plan of your lab. This will give you the positioning of the non-movable objects, like benches and hoods, as well as the physical proportions of the space. If you know the dimensions of the equipment that you will purchase, make a reduced scaled footprint of the equipment out of sticky notes. You should do this with desks, file cabinets, movable shelving, etc. Now you can move things around on paper without throwing your back out by moving the actual equipment. ) If a piece of equipment "just fits" according to the scale of the floor plan you will still 30 GETTIN' STARTED need to measure the space yourself, because construction of laboratories and buildings is a qualitative science, not quantitative.
