Description of Project
The Physics Department conducts the majority of its undergraduate instruction in two large lecture halls in Loomis Laboratory. Room 141 seats 311 students and room 151 seats 312 students. These lecture halls are located adjacent to one another and their design is almost identical as sloped arenas with fixed theater seating focused on an instruction area.

The fixtures and finishes in these two lecture halls are original to the building constructed in 1959 and after 40 years of intensive use of these rooms are worn-out and in need of remodeling and refitting with advanced media presentation equipment. The scope of work is to completely demolish both rooms as one project to their structural shell and then completely replace the finishes with new material for: heating and air conditioning, ceiling, lighting and controls, theater seating, paint, flooring, doors and hardware, instructional equipment and benches. The instructional media will include audio, video, projection, computer and Internet capability. The rooms will be made to comply with all ADA and Life Safety requirements.
