The project was the partial renovation of the 8,573 square foot fifth floor of the Robotics Building on the University of Kentucky’s main campus. The work generally consisted of the selective demolition of CMU and gypsum board systems walls, lay-in ceilings and associated suspension systems, HM frames and wood doors, resilient flooring and base, electrical devices and wiring, and plumbing fixtures with associated piping. The project also entailed new gypsum board system walls and selected ceilings and soffits, lay-in acoustic ceilings, hollow metal door frames, solid wood doors, aluminum storefront systems, resilient floor tile, carpet tiles, architectural woodwork counters, laboratory casework and new MEP systems. This project utilized a helicopter lift to position mechanical equipment on the roof of the building.
