This project was both the conversion of library stack space into an instrumentation/biochemistry lab as well as a renovation of the existing portion of biochemistry labs, offices, conference room, and kitchen. His lab is equipped with both Mossbauer spectrometers as well as a Raman spectrometer and other equipment. Dr. Guo explores the roles that metal-containing proteins play in biological processes.
The conversion space had no existing services and had to support not only Dr. Guo’s space, but a future collaborative/shared instrumentation space. Integrating MEP systems into these spaces while creating spaces that harnessed natural daylight and maximized transparency was a challenge but led to an end product that enhances the investigator’s comfort and ability to accomplish their goals.
