Chemistry building renovation/new building: Advice?

Submitted by Kate Plass / Franklin & Marshall College on Tue, 06/06/2017 - 09:57


Has anyone been through a renovation or new building process? Can you share lessons learned about how to (and how to not) go about this? What was your planning process? How did you stage the actual construction? Recommendations for where to start investigating lab configuration options? 

Advice Needed: Renovating general chemistry laboratories
We have gotten the funds to renovate our general chemistry laboratories that were originally built in 1974. We are overwelmed at the possibilities. Do you keep the original layout or do we get creative? Do we keep the hoods against the walls or do we get two-sided hoods? I would welcome any advice, horror stories, success stories, or wish we had done this instead?
