This project involved the construction of a new science laboratory building located on The Ohio State University’s College of Food Agriculture & Environmental Science (CFAES) campus in Wooster, Ohio. Prior to the construction of the new facility, additionsand alterations were made to the campus’s existing chilled water plant, as it was beyond capacity, and upgrades were necessary to accommodate new the project. The complete scope of work included the construction of the new science/laboratory building, the addition of new equipment and associated alterations to the chilled water system, and upgrades to Fisher Auditorium.
The new 55,700 SF facility accommodates entomology research. Undergraduate lab space is included in the new building to promote collaboration and to take advantage of common infrastructure. The project required multiple GMPs; one for the enabling chilled water system scope and one for the building construction.
