LaGrange, GA

Ida Calloway Science Building and Cason J. Callaway Science Buidling

The existing 23,000 SF Cason J. Callaway Science Building was renovated, and the new 40,000 SF Ida Callaway Hudson Lab Sciences Building was designed adjacent to the existing building.  The new science building includes biology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, general teaching space, faculty offices, and building support. ICT provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design for the structure which serves as a gateway to the campus.


  • Renovation with Addition
  • Design efforts included Phoenix Control Valves on fume hoods to help ensure a safe environment to meet NFPA 45 and to save energy consumption by reducing the exhaust and outside air requirements. 
  • The associated laboratory supply air VAV tracked the hood exhaust which integrated hood sash controls.

Project Highlights:

  • The new structure will contain laboratories and research space, as well as offices for biology and chemistry faculty.
  • When its renovation is complete, the current Callaway Science Building, built in 1972, will serve as classroom space for all the sciences and will house modern laboratories for physics and computational mathematics.
