As the CM for this project, Kel-Mar, worked closely with the Architect and Owner, providing both pre-construction and construction services that included developing and value engineering new systems and requirements to meet the school’s needs.
Innovative state-of-the-art biology and chemistry labs required new electric and gas services be brought into the building and distributed throughout. Laboratories included custom built-in upper and lower case wood cabinets, and lab tables that also included special epoxy resin countertops. Integral to the scope was a fume hood with stainless steel exhaust and specialized exhaust system, as well as an acid wash plumbing system connecting to an acid wash chemical sink in the basement.
Typical science lab safety features such as an emergency shower and an eye wash station were also part of the scope. Other work included administrative offices, a conference center, and a pantry on the administrative floor.
