My best guess is that before I knew permanent lab stations were an option
(small budgets and all) I was going to have the drop down electric. When
the Lab stations happened I ASSUMED (for shame!) that the designer person
would toss the drop down electric realizing that the stations are rigged for
outlets on two sides each, and are supposed to be a relatively obstruction
free LAB station & working surface.... I think something got lost in the
translation and someone didn't want to re-dig the floor once they realized
the error, so the columns appeared.
