WTS collaborated with EYP for the renovation of the former Law School Center. The renovation provides for the complete gutting and abatement of approximately 180,000 SF of the 1970’s structure. The renovation creates three floors of undergraduate chemistry teaching laboratories, related student spaces and a new entrance atrium, student gathering, and multiple collaboration spaces.
The new classroom and undergraduate laboratories will provide a highly transparent environment which puts safety and science on display. The laboratories will provide three floors of state-of-the-art laboratories for Honors Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry, and Physical and Analytical Chemistry. The project includes an extensive asbestos abatement phase.The new laboratory and classroom building is being constructed using a CM-at-Risk delivery method. WTS prepared separate bidding packages for demolition and abatement followed by the fit-out construction documents. Repurposing of an existing structure in the heart of a tight urban campus provided an economically
and sustainable approach to meeting the increasing demand for undergraduate chemistry teaching spaces.
