Conard Hall Lab Renovation

Hasenstab Architects provided professional design services for renovations to Conard Hall at The Ohio State University – Mansfield Campus.

The project involved renovations to an existing, unused classroom into a new organic chemistry lab. The lab was designed to also allow larger general chemistry classes to use the space.

In order to achieve flexibility, the chemical fume hoods (a total of six student hoods) were placed at the perimeter of the room.

The center of the room was then configured as a “U” to give seating on both sides of the benches and provide additional flexible space inside of the “U.”

Organic chemistry is a new program to the Mansfield campus so “right sizing” the space for a new program while balancing the budget was critical. The project at Conard Hall also included a study and meeting space outside of the lab, as well as finish upgrades to the adjacent corridor.
