Grand Rapids Community College
Higher Education

The DMOL is part of Ferris State University located in the Grand Rapids Community College campus’ Applied Technology Center. This project included architectural renovations of the existing rooms to accommodate a new Molecular Diagnostics Lab suite. The suite included (2) interior vestibules, a lecture room, a 16-station laboratory and several support rooms including a prep room, a specimen room, a dark room, and small locker room. Classroom and Lab finishes included ceilings, carpet, hollow metal doors, lockers, an anti-microbial VCT floor and wood casework. The strict timeline had to be met in order for the laboratory to open for fall classes. The area adjacent to the DMOL was being refurbished by another contractor while Beckering Construction was working on this lab and close coordination was vital to the success of both projects.
