Department of Biomedical Informatics

The challenge of this project was to create a dense office environment comprised of demountable partition systems, cubicle systems, furniture, and collaboration zones within a complex and unusual structural layout of the exiting Lincoln Tower on The Ohio State University campus. Wayfinding within this structural system becomes challenging, as it is difficult for orientation. To make this easier, Wellogy utilized a system of colorful center nodes and entry systems referencing as an easy wayfinding means for staff and visitors.

This project includes the renovation/upgrade of 30,000 sf of space in Lincoln Tower to accommodate the relocation of the Department of Biomedical Informatics from various locations on campus to one consolidated team. The project included Administrative Offices, Clinical and Translational Informatics, Computational Biology and Data Services offices, and collaboration spaces for the Department of Biomedical Informatics.

Wellogy created a welcoming entry within the administrative offices as well as a training room and numerous breakout work and planning stations throughout the department. The Wellogy team worked with the code officials at the Columbus Fire Department to upgrade the fire alarm systems and replace the air-handling units in this high-rise building to meet code requirements.
