How are you going to transport carts of supplies – including hazardous materials – to the labs? In the passenger elevator? Will you have key access to the elevator, so you don’t carry passengers with your cart of sulfuric acid?


If there’s room in the basement that would be renovated for you and they would renovate your space for offices, wouldn’t it be more efficient to leave you alone & renovate for the needed space in the basement?

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Stockroom Location


Greetings all,

Like most colleges and universities, my school needs more space - specifically offices and teaching classrooms.  One suggestion was to move the chemical stockroom from the third floor (top floor) by all the chemistry labs to the sub-basement.

Can any of you help me keep the chemical stockroom on the third floor?  Is there any building code or recommended teaching protocol or some other rule of thumb that would keep me near the labs that use the chemicals?
