University of Virginia Chemistry Lab Renovations
This project, which takes place in the University of Virginia Chemistry Building, includes the renovation of two separate laboratory spaces. The laboratories will be renovated in two phases. Phase one of the project is renovating the 2220 square foot Harman Lab. This lab will be prepared to act as a temporary laboratory while phase two of the project is in action. Phase two consists of renovating the 4000 square foot Kucenas/Grainger Lab.
The Harman Lab renovation includes the demolition of existing mechanical laboratory equipment along with portions of the existing casework and flooring. Much of the existing casework and lab equipment will be salvaged for the university. New casework and mechanical laboratory equipment will be installed along with a new resinous epoxy floor.
The Kucenas/Grainger Lab renovation will involve a higher degree of structural demolition, including CMU wall and concrete slab removal. Also, a large amount of casework and mechanical equipment will be removed and salvaged for the university. This large laboratory will then be divided into two separate laboratories before the new casework and mechanical equipment is installed. This lab also will have a new resinous epoxy floor installed.
