UF Institute on Aging Medical Science Building Renovation

  • Project Owner: University of Florida
  • Location: Gainesville FL
  • Completion Date: August 2017
  • Project Size: 3,132 s/f
  • Partners: Walker Architects

The UF Institute on Aging project involved a 3,100 s/f renovation to an existing laboratory space on the 2nd-floor at the Stetson Medical Sciences Building on UF Campus. The renovation included construction of three new offices, a conference room, a microscope room with blackout shading to be used during research, an equipment room with sufficient power to support a -80° deep freezer, two new fume hoods with air/med-gas/vacuum services, a new kitchen/break area and an approximately 1000+ SF open laboratory space with new lab casework along with replacing nearly 125 linear feet-worth of exterior storefront windows.

MEP-FP coordination was more complex than usual as the concrete deck above and below the space constricted the available routes for MEP-FP installation. In addition, the project took place in an occupied medical research facility that required careful coordination to schedule work around the normal operations of the surrounding departments and maintain cleanliness of the corridor outside of the renovation area.
