The challenge

Our client’s 2,500-square-foot Biosafety Level (BSL)-3 clinical pathology testing laboratory was experiencing significant problems with airflow, cracks in the walls, and electrical failures. They were also having difficulty maintaining appropriate room temperature and humidity. They needed to determine the causes and resolve them.

Our solution

Our team conducted a comprehensive investigation of the laboratory, including design and function of the space as well as all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, technology, and fire protection systems. Based on our findings, we developed several options for ameliorative action and selected a recommended route.
