THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY AGRICULTURAL TECHNICAL INSTITUTE CLASSROOM AND LAB IMPROVEMENTS

The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) is a two year technical college established in 1969 as a school within The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The institute is located in Wooster, Ohio, approximately 100 miles northeast of Columbus. ATI currently enrolls approximately 700 students. Halterman Hall and Skou Hall are the two primary classroom buildings on the campus. Halterman Hall, 54,245 GSF, was constructed in 1973; and Skou Hall, 72,105 GSF, was constructed in 1978. No significant upgrades have occurred in the classrooms or teaching laboratories since the buildings were constructed.

 

The scope of services includes the review of the University’s facility assessment and perform any additional evaluation for the classroom and laboratory conditions for both buildings. Significant consideration must be given to fume hoods and bench ventilation needs; laboratory and classroom case goods and furniture upgrades; technology upgrades; lighting; and overall classroom ambiance. The design team is evaluating the spaces for the presence of hazardous materials.  Work is being coordinated around the school year schedule and includes a phased construction plan for minimal room closures during the school year.
