Clemson University, Greenwood, SC
Center for Human Genetics


Engineered Designs, Inc. provided engineering design and construction administration services for a new laboratory research facility for Clemson University at the Greenwood Genetics Center in Greenwood, SC.

Clemson University is currently working in partnership with the Greenwood Genetics Center on education and research activities associated with human diagnostics and central nervous system research in cognitive development, autism, birth defects and epigenetics. The current educational component of the Center is a doctoral program in human genetics. This building will serve as a research and education center to expand the existing doctoral program to include a nationally competitive research and development team and enhance the existing research capabilities of the J.C. Self Research Institute of Human Genetics. The project allows for expansion of the existing research capabilities that the university has in Greenwood and will attract research and development companies engaged in human genetics research.


The 17,000 square foot Clemson University Center for Human Genetics sits on approximately 2.4 acres of the 16.7 acre tract owned by Clemson, and is sited to allow for future campus buildings. The building accommodates eight (8) each 800 SF BSL-2 labs, bottle wash, autoclave, offices, breakroom, conference/seminar rooms, and lobby/public spaces. The building was designed to fulfill requirements for LEED Silver Certification.

Morehead Chemistry HVAC Replacement


Beginning as a like-for-like replacement of the lab building's unconditioned lab hood make-up AHUs, the project's scope drastically increased when it was identified that there were humidity issues in the building that was making less than desirable conditions for students. The $15 million budget project included the replacement of the entire HVAC systems serving the lab areas including make-up AHUs, supply air distribution, teaching hood and student hood exhaust fans and ductwork, a new hot water boiler plant, and all new DDC control system. Other deficiency corrections included the installation of new ceilings to insure adequate air changes were provided, new LED lighting throughout the lab areas, corridor ceiling replacements, new low-flow lab hoods, a complete replacement of the fire alarm system and elevator upgrades.
