Harry S. Truman College Biology Laboratory Renovations

Chicago, Illinois | 7,790 SF

Renovation is underway for the existing Truman College biology department including two teaching lab classrooms, prep and storage areas, and the biology department offices. The biology laboratories have not been renovated since originally constructed in 1976, making the newly designed laboratories and classrooms an urgent necessity to meet decades of pedagogical and technological changes. The new design of the prep area maximizes storage and provides more efficient circulation flow. In addition, updates are planned to all the lab infrastructure including the lighting, electrical, plumbing, lab gasses, and to the HVAC systems, which will now comply with current codes.
