The Austin E. Knowlton Center at Baldwin Wallace University is a new 46,800-square-foot facility that features an array of labs, lounges, offices and classrooms. The building was designed with input from STEM industry experts.
The center is home to an elevator shaft that is wrapped in wood panels crafted from reclaimed campus trees. Second-floor windows provide a sweeping view of the campus’ north quad. The center also features floor-to-ceiling windows, collaborative space and an indoor amphitheater.
The building has nearly 10,000 square feet of Laminators Composite Panel Solutions’ Omega-Lite ACM lites. The lites provide a strong surface and help enhance the building’s attractiveness.
The lites were installed using a clip and caulk installation system. This method provides a flat look without visible fasteners.
