The University of Hawaii’s 4-story Edmondson Hall underwent a major renovation after a fire devastated the mid-century Biology Building. The objective was to completely gut and replace the existing interiors with new, modern spaces for students, faculty, researchers and administrators. Quality, functionality and budget were the main concerns for the University. CEI worked together with the designer, contractor and the University to enhance the new state-of-the-art teaching laboratories with intelligent lab seating, efficient storage, and furnishings for the newly created open collaboration spaces, meeting rooms, lounge areas and offices.
