Lipscomb University

College of Pharmacy

Nashville, TN

College of Pharmacy

The university’s teaching and research facility includes a pharmaceutical research lab with a walk-in cold room, medical gas systems and an acid waste sanitary system, a nuclear storage and waste room, a tissue culture room, teaching labs and integrated biomedical sciences labs. These features require a more involved mechanical system than a typical construction project.

ICT provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design, and construction administration for a new two-story building housing the College of Pharmacy. The College provides a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees dedicated to the delivery of patient care and well-being.
