Oakland University improves labs, updates equipment

A number of renovated science labs recently opened their doors at Oakland University.

The
Rochester-based school recently finished work on 18 labs and classrooms
in Hannah, O’Dowd, and Wilson Hall that are used for studies in
chemistry, biology, physics, nursing, art, and physical therapy, along
with a computer lab.

The original science-based labs dated
back to the 1960s and ’70s. The new spaces are both better lit and
safer, meeting more modern expectations for education. The improvements
include plumbing, electrical, and aesthetic work, along with new
floors, ceilings, equipment, and upgraded mechanical systems.
