Logan Hall Renovation
Constructed in 1953, Logan Hall is named after Thomas J. Logan, a Cincinnati clothing manufacturer. The building is home to Xavier University Chemistry Department. The building, last renovated nearly 15 years ago, suffered from inadequate and insufficient ventilation and cooling. The facility’s labs and equipment were outdated and inadequate for current curriculum, teaching methods and research interests. As a result, the university was having trouble attracting top students to its chemistry degree programs.
Over the past two years glaserworks led a renovation of Logan Hall, completing the second phase in summer 2018. Xavier University’s chemistry building now features a new teaching laboratory and fully renovated teaching and research laboratories as well as modernized classrooms, offices and support spaces.
All mechanical systems were refurbished or replaced. The new laboratory exhaust system includes 31 new fume hoods (traditional exhausting hoods and recirculating ductless filtered hoods.) Exterior renovations include additional insulation, roof replacement and various facade repairs.
This project also involved creating new classrooms and renovating departmental offices.
