Johnson C. Smith University, located in the heart of Charlotte, NC was looking to increase the capabilities of the College of STEM by building a new 62,000 square foot facility.
Three floors of laboratories and teaching spaces were furnished with cider color-stained Maple wood veneer casework, student benches and mobile instructor benches, fully welded mobile steel tables and acid and solvent cabinets.
Multiple laboratories were furnished with high performance RFV2 fume hoods were outfitted with Automatic Sash Operators (ASO). When ASOs are combined with VAV systems large energy savings are expected. Because the sash closes after the user leaves the work area the exhaust flow and related energy consumption is reduced while enhancing laboratory safety.
Overhead service assemblies were provided which allows for various items to be hung from the ceiling while conducting experiments. Custom down-draft tables and student cubbies were also provided to fit the needs of the users.
