Alumni Medical Library at Boston University, Boston, Mass.

Key Products Used for BU's Medical Library Renovation

In renovating the 13,000-sq.-ft. Alumni Medical Library at Boston University, Finegold Alexander Architects designed carrels and booths, and group study rooms within an open, transparent space. In swapping out a concrete encased staircase with a glass wall system, this brings visibility and light across the floorplate. DIRTT demountable partitions were specified for the individual study booths and for the glass fronts at the group study and tutor rooms to provide sound isolation. In addition, 2Tec2 woven vinyl flooring was selected as an easy to clean, durable option for withstanding the moving chairs and heavy foot traffic. The system also has a felt backing for sound absorption.Another int


Breathe-Easy Walls

DIRTT’s zero volatile organic compounds (VOC) mixture for its painted walls was developed in partnership with Envirotech. The new zero-VOC formula coats DIRTT’s Chromacoat painted walls and is more durable and impact resistant than other painted finishes. Chromacoat uses a single-coat process, meaning painted building components are ready to be packaged and shipped in just nine minutes.
