University of Toledo
Hasenstab Architects is providing professional design services for the Anatomy Specimen Laboratory at the University of Toledo. Located on the lower level of the Health Science Building, which was originally constructed in 1970, the Anatomy Laboratory is being renovated to provide a state of the art facility that incorporates flexibility, technology and adaptability.
The renovation aims to expand and improve the anatomy specimen preparation and embalming facility, expand specimen storage capacity, improve the human anatomy cadaver dissection laboratories, and improve support areas, student lockers, wash and restroom facilities.
Programmed space includes a new Gross Anatomy Lab to support the use of 50 dissecting tables, two smaller labs, an embalming area, anatomy storage area and morgue cooler. A student lounge, locker rooms, and support spaces are also part of the project scope.
This project is not anticipated to seek a LEED certification, however the project goals will be to follow the guidelines to deliver a finished project that would meet LEED Silver certification.
Phase I was completed in December 2015 and encompassed the Gross Anatomy Laboratory. Phase II will be completed in May 2016 and will include two small labs, student areas and support space.
