The University awarded a contract for laboratory casework to Charles E. Shomo and Associates, Inc., Skokie, IL for $90,561.
Laboratory casework to include, but is not limited to: bench work, fume hoods, countertops, shelving, and workstations.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. The lab casework will be used in Room 412, an extension of 411, creating the Dentistry Wound Healing Center for the College of Dentistry.

The proposed laboratory's infrastructure needs and compatibility requirements will only be met by the acquistion of the Kewaunee lab casework supplied by Charles Shomo and Associates. The existing mechanical systems (plumbing and gases) have been installed in a way that would not accept another line of laboratory casework. To support the infrastructure currently in place, and maintain continuity of design and function, it is recommended that Kewaunee casework be procured for this laboratory.
