Project Description

Otto Construction completed the 18-month renovation of Life Sciences and Physical Sciences Buildings. Meeting the demands of very specific program requirements, the new building is composed of 13 laboratories for various sciences including: Geology, Ornamental Horticulture, General Chemistry, Physics, Microbiology, Anatomy, Biology, Life Science and Physiology. There were also four math classrooms, Dental and Medical Assistant labs, a cadaver room, large multi-purpose classrooms, a chemical storage room, group study areas, faculty offices, and state-of-the-art conference rooms. The laboratories include gas, water and power routed to each student station, epoxy sinks and counter tops, stainless steel work surfaces, 15 48-inch fume hoods were also installed and an air balancing system that activates when the fume hoods are turned on. To avoid having the college lose two buildings at once, first we renovated the 2-story Life Sciences Building and then the 2-story Physical Sciences Building.
