OSU’s Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building to host conference

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Oct. 8, 2014) A new building at the Ohio State University designed by PCPA will be the site—and the subject—of a sold-out workshop for owners of new institutional and commercial buildings. The annual fall workshop of the COAA-OH, the Ohio chapter of the Construction Owners Association of America, will take place at the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building on the OSU campus in Columbus, Ohio, this year.

The day-long event will include a panel discussion “Ohio State University's Master Plan and the New CBEC Building.” Among the presenters is Darin Cook, PCPA’s project manager for the CBEC project. Members of the project team and OSU officials will participate in the discussion about the state-of-the-art research center and its role on OSU’s 1,700-acre main campus. The program concludes with a tour of the building, set to open in November.

The Chemical Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building will substantially increase OSU’s capacity for interdisciplinary research in the chemical sciences and engineering. Light-filled and open, it will include gathering spaces for researchers and students, reinforcing the collaborative atmosphere of the labs. Located on a newly extended campus green, the building comprises a lab wing and an office tower connected by bridges.

Construction Owners Association of America supports project owners' success in the design and construction of buildings and facilities through education, information, and developing relationships within the industry.
