2016 BSA Accessible Design Award; 49 Fume Hoods Largest Installation in the world at the time
Architectural Engineers provided plumbing and fire protection design and construction administration for the $60 million expansion and renovation of the campus science center. AEI designed protected water, acid waste, wet sprinkler, plumbing sanitary waste, lab waste, venting, domestic and protected hot and cold water recirculation, and emergency wash tempered recirculated water piping systems. The plumbing design included compressed air, vacuum, and natural gas systems specific to laboratory regulations. A four-story central common integrates two buildings to create one unified science complex, and the building features 49 filtered fume hoods, which at the time was the largest installation of fume hoods in the world.
