Remodeled for Research

Properties Magazine's May issue features Kent State University’s Williams Hall as the first step in KSU’s multi-phase upgrade of their science buildings. VAA converted 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.
