Adaptation Projects Updates
iRADIO STATION ALTERATION
A more sufficient space for the iRadio Station program of College of Humanities & Social Sciences was required to replace the existing OMB N1099 room. OMB S351 which was formerly an underused e-service space was selected to become the site for iRadio station. OMB S351 came with constraints of both pedestrian Metro Rail traffic noise and vibrations, but held advantages of being visible and highly accessible. The space was therefore given soundproof and acoustic treatments on walls, openings and ceilings, to achieve reduced noise, vibrations and reverberations. The external facade was to remain unaffected as much as possible.
The Cashiers' front desk was reconfigured to offer more privacy and ease in transactions. More secure building components materials were requested in the form of anti-ballistic materials, because the space is located in a high traffic zone open to the public and a transportation node.

INFORMATION DESK UPGRADE
As a result of the build out of iRadio Station, the Information desk lost an access point to the desk area which was in use by its student workers. A new desk was required which would provide an upgraded replacement, while making the area more spacious. The desk also offered screens in compliance with COVID-19 regulations.
PHOTOGRAPHY LABORATORY ALTERATION
The UHD Photographer did not have an existing photography studio, also the University of Relations requested the addition of 7 more offices to provide space for its growing team. OMB 950 which was the former language lab was selected to serve this purpose. A studio and office space was created to serve the UHD Photographer with six additional adjacent offices surrounding it.
