The Kent Hale Smith Laboratory for Science and Engineering was constructed in 1993 and is the home for the Department of Macromolecular Science. It comprises 90,000 gross square feet (more than 8350 square meters) of floor space, providing 55,000 net square feet (5100 square meters) of laboratories, classrooms and offices. We are located on Adelbert Road, adjacent to Chemistry and Physics, opposite to the Medical School, and connected to Chemical Engineering in the A.W. Smith Building and the old Case quadrangle by a third floor bridge. As a result, we are in an excellent position for collaborative research involving other disciplines. The building comprises five floors, plus a basement: the chemical laboratories are on the top floor, heavier equipment is on the ground floor, and laboratories mainly for structure-property analysis occupy the other floors (except for the majority of electron microscopes in the basement which minimize vibrations).
