This renovation modernizes the main chemistry teaching laboratories for UMass Lowell’s North Campus. The space focuses on clear, unobstructed sightlines to enable instruction and supervision while also making possible a flexible teaching and lecture style. Work benches are designed to respond to a variety of teaching styles with individual and group spaces. Fume hoods are organized along the perimeter wall to enable clear supervision. A flexible lecture space can be set up in various layouts to accommodate demonstration, lecture, presentation, and testing. Low-volume airflow fume hoods, energy-efficient building systems, and variable air volume controls were used to maximize the energy efficiency of the laboratory space. Light materials are used to brighten the space and provide a warm environment.
