KENT STATE UNIVERSITY WILLIAMS HALL MULTI-DISCIPLINE LAB

VAA worked in conjunction with KSU pedagogical consultant Ayers Saint Gross to convert the Williams Hall third floor library and support spaces into a multi-discipline lab for bioengineering and wet biology.  The design provides a flexible, open layout adaptable for future uses.  To accomplish this task, our team utilized best practices in modular lab design, met with researchers to understand needs, and incorporated state-of-the-art technology to enhance lab flexibility and attract highly acclaimed researchers.
