- $50 million research facility
- 210 laboratory modules
- 234,000 square feet
- Four story laboratory wing connected to office wing via atrium and bridges
- Installation of Class 100 Clean Room Laboratories
The New Physics Research Building on the OSU campus is a state-of-the-art laboratory, office, conference, and clean-room space utilized by the Physics Department of The Ohio State University. The facility houses research in the fields of astrophysics, atomic physics, molecular physics, optical physics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, high energy particle physics, biophysics, and physics research education.
The Kirk Williams Company served as both the mechanical and plumbing contractor for the construction of this facility. The extensive fiberglass duct system, high purity water systems and clean-room facilities, in addition to the typical HVAC and plumbing work, allowed us to showcase our diverse skill set.
The mechanical systems were installed in tight corridors, requiring extensive coordination and a layered construction process for success. Our proactive problem solving approach led to working through many issues in a manner which exceeded our contract requirements.
