Indiana University, Jordan Hall – Various Research Laboratory Renovation ProjectsIndiana University, Jordan Hall – Various Research Laboratory Renovation Projects 2,000 s.f. – 21,000 s.f. 2007 - 2011 $1.2 million - $10 million
Jordan Hall is home to world-class research and nationally-ranked graduate programs for the IU Department of Biology. Built in the 1950’s, this historic structure has undergone a series of interior renovations to provide cutting-edge research spaces for the IU students and faculty. Over the years, arcDESIGN has designed many of these improvements.
Scope: arcDESIGN has designed many areas within Jordan Hall. Several state-of-the-art teaching and research labs have been completely renovated, allowing the Department of Biology to continue its legacy of progressive research and teaching. Additionally, a new rooftop and greenhouse system was designed to replace the dilapidated system. arcDESIGN also worked with the University to develop a $20 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant proposal for upgrades and infrastructure repairs to Jordan Hall.
Featured Facts: arcDESIGN worked closely with the University to recapture underutilized space originally designed to serve as “stacks” for the Biology library. This space was converted to additional lab space by removing the mezzanine and restructuring the second floor.
