Consisting of our standard Premium Grade Plastic Laminated Casework and Counter Tops manufactured per guidelines set forth by the Woodwork Institute, this project utilized many typical cabinet boxes from ADA compliant sink base cabinets with integrated toe-kicks and full height storage cabinets to desk file drawers, CPU cases and standard upper & base cabinets throughout the entire building.

The Academic Resources, Learning Center & Circulation Desks are constructed with plastic laminated tapered die-walls and solid end panels. The transaction tops rest upon a reveal treatment and are framed by anodized aluminum angles with inset frosted tempered glass revealing a hue of the plastic laminate color from underneath.

To maximize usability in the Supplemental Instruction Room, strategically placed custom cases with false panels provide functional storage space while concealing the buildings structural sway support.
