Ansys, an American simulation software company, and Carnegie Mellon University have cooperated on a wholly new teaching facility where students, faculty, and collaborators innovate and interact with cutting-edge simulation and fabrication tools. The 36,000 square foot building features high glass bay walls with a garage door opening, and open learning spaces connected by a spacious mezzanine walkway. Resources include a design studio, engineering education labs, fabrication tools and workshops, a computer cluster, and multiple collaboration spaces with bright, natural light.
Preparation of approximately 5,000 ft2 of floorspace was carried out by Mosites Construction, a PSP-certified approved applicator. As a first step, PRIMER STX 100, a bonding agent, was used to prepare the floors for a subsequent layer of LEVELINE 15, a self-leveling underlayment, to provide a level and flat surface. PENESEAL FH, a clear, reactive penetrating sealer, was then applied to protect the LEVELINE 15 layer from other trades that were still working during the final construction phase – as the final flooring was not installed over the newly-poured LEVELINE 15 until that phase of construction was completed
