The challenge

Our client needed to update and collocate four laboratories whose average age was more than 40 years. Those labs support divisions that are vital to North Carolina’s citizens, farms, and businesses: Food and Drug Protection, Standards, Motor Fuels, Structural Pest Control and Pesticides, and Veterinary Diagnostics.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien designed a state-of-the-art laboratory complex that houses offices, laboratories, and shared spaces. Designs support advanced testing equipment and include special systems such as purified water types, lab gases, air transfer segregation/isolation, special exhaust, humidity control, multiple voltage types, and high-intensity critical lab lighting.
