Western Nebraska Community College, Science Lab Remodel
Location: Scottsbluff, NE
Year completed: 2012
Project cost: —
The remodel of WNCC’s Science wing was a complete demo and remodel of four science labs, a classroom, and an open student study and common space area.
The renovation brought new learning styles, state-of-the-art-technology, and brought the space up to current code compliance – all while maintaining function and aesthetics that are so important to educational spaces today.
Our team worked closely with professors and executives from WNCC, and we were able to meet their needs for updating their facility both technologically and aesthetically to offer a dynamic learning environment for its students. Two biology rooms and a chemistry lab were completed, as well as WNCC’s first ‘Active Learning’ Classroom which integrates a raised flooring system that provides an ‘in the round’ teaching style and state-of-the-art technology.
The biology and chemistry labs required extensive coordination with regards to individual student workstations equipped with specialized gas, venting, and electrical needs and this all came together to create a successful specialized learning environment for their science department.
