Science Laboratories Renovations, Daley College

City Colleges of Chicago - Chicago, IL

The project included the conversion of four existing classrooms into two new entry level science laboratories: one for Biology and one for Chemistry. In addition, one existing Chemistry Laboratory, circa 1970, was gutted and completely renovated into a state-of-the-art facility for high level science courses. Each lab was outfitted with new casework, fume hoods, sinks and gas valves.

The design and construction of these laboratories was sensitive to the concurrent schedule of classes which continued throughout the process. Daley College has a contemporary approach to instructor/student interaction, and the design solution reflected this concept by incorporating custom lab tables and smart board technology with fresh colors and materials. Each laboratory also includes computers/monitors at every work station, writable wall surfaces, and new laboratory safety features.
