Celeste Laboratory Study and Renovation

01 Challenge

BHDP was commissioned by The Ohio State University to develop a comprehensive master plan study to renovate Celeste Laboratory, home to the university’s undergraduate department of chemistry and biochemistry. Upon completion of the study, the university decided to move forward with phased renovations. 

02 Solution

BHDP designed 10 modern teaching laboratories as well as lab support spaces for student collaboration. Through a collaborative process with the owner, construction manager, and design-assist contractors, the BHDP team was able to achieve the department’s need for teaching space without disrupting other classrooms and labs.
