Installing a faucet for a laundry tub

I am in the process of finishing my basement and I plan on installing a laundry tub. I am looking at this one:

It seems that there is no hole (or holes) pre-cut for the faucet. Do these sinks generally come without the holes? Does that mean I have to cut the holes myself?

Thanks in advance.

I our artsy-fartsy society, we have too many designs to choose from, so do you want a single faucet stem, 8" spread unit, 4" spread unit, separate spout with spread out handles???? They are manufacturing a product that everyone can use, without having to make 5 sub models, and have to stock them. They are fairly easy to drill out since they are acrylic. But from what I am reading from the site, this is an air sink. Is there a pump associated with it? Are you looking for something this elaborate, or just a sink?

I was actually looking at the drop-in model without the jets. I just wanted something that could sit in a cabinet, as opposted to the type with plastic legs.

You can drill out your own holes, depending on which type faucet you want to install, either single for a single faucet without using an occlusion plate to cover the normally existing other holes. Or you could drill all three and have a conventional 8" spread faucet. Consider, also a commercial type sprayer, like the ones in commercial kitchens. It hooks back to act just like a regular faucet, but unhooks and you can use it to wash a dog, or rinse odd shaped objects. Just a thought.
