A Bridge Electric design build project with AES Engineering as our partner.
The project is two wings of a large four wing functional teaching laboratory complex. The facility includes space for laboratories, research space, classrooms, seminar rooms, and a 125 seat lecture theatre and serves a multitude of disciplines; molecular cell genetics, inverts & aquatics, botany, bio chemistry, microbiology, & humming birds.
The East wing is a brand new 6 level structure that contains the new lecture theatre. While the North wing is classified as a renovation, the 6 level structure was stripped back down to the core with significant structural upgrades (shear walls, transfer beams & associated footings, expansion joints, etc.) making this essentially a full new installation.
