OSU Johnson Hall
This building is home of OSU’s School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering. It houses a 125-seat lecture hall, state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories, and a center focused on improving recruitment and retention of engineering students while pushing the envelope in research. The labs include 32 different piping systems including Hydrogen and other orbital welded specialty gases. These are in a tightly conditioned environment via heat recover, dedicated lab exhaust, custom AHU’s, Phoenix Lab exhaust system, radiant floors, chilled beams, radiant ceiling panels, a upgrades and reconfigured chilled water plant in the adjacent Kelley Engineering Building fed via direct bury chilled & Steam and a toxic gas monitoring system to keep occupants comfortable and safe.
Almost 20% of lab piping and services were designed after we won the project with a street bid. We worked with the A/E team and the professors to D/B much of the scope for science machines and experiments that were being designed by the students and staff in real time while being built in place.
