Campus building receives lab upgrades over the summer


September 12,2016

Two labs in the Natural Science building received complete renovations over the summer. The entire process was overseen by Planner/Inspector/Analyst II Carol Cool.

In addition to a new paint job, the labs were completely stripped of all materials and given brand new cabinets, desks, tiling and window shades.

“Everything came out pretty well,” said Cool, who was the project manager. “I think the client was very pleased.”

These updated learning and research areas provide a fresh, modernized work environment for students and faculty. See the labs transform to a hub for collaborative research and study below.
