Gilman School | Science Building Renovation
Lewis Contractors completed the Phase 1 renovation work to the Science Building on the Gilman School campus in Baltimore, Maryland. Work involved the renovation of the main corridors to the science center and classroom renovations which included new floors, ceilings, lighting upgrades, HVAC modifications, and sprinkler work. Initial scopes of work entailed classroom and corridor renovations to include the reconfiguration of classroom spaces, new lab casework and tops, new ergonomic rubber flooring, new ceilings, lighting upgrades, HVAC modifications, and sprinkler work. Lewis provided new lab benches, lab tops and fume hoods, as well as a new air handling unit and exhaust fans in the attic space. These mechanical system upgrades required careful integration of the new units with both the existing and scheduled-to-remain systems.
In addition, the existing BAS was a Johnson Controls system and this project included transitioning of the BAS to a Tridium system requiring extensive coordination between both parties. The unexpected scope increases included new men’s and women’s toilet facilities, a new floating stair with glass railings and terrazzo steps, a new janitorial closet, a substantial new casework package, and moving the north entrance to the building several feet farther to the north. In the end, this project touched 20,000 SF—across two levels and the attic—to include 11 classrooms, two main corridors, eight offices/meeting rooms/multi-purpose spaces and the north entry.
