Their challenge

This project involved the university’s State Diagnostic Laboratory, a building housing a variety of labs including those designated for Bacteriology, Mycology, Clinical Pathology, Hemostasis, Histopathology, Molecular Diagnostics, Necropsy, Parasitology, Pythium Serology, Mucormycosis Serology, and Serology-Virology, as well as a biosafety lab. The client needed an engineering partner with experience designing for critical laboratory environments.

Our solution

The Salas O’Brien team performed mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering services for this over 50,000-square-foot structure. Our solutions support the main building’s operation as well as each of the laboratories’ critical environment design needs.
