Designed to meet LEED Silver Standards, this unique 440,000 sq. ft space would be used for testing, but also for clinical, research and teaching functions. The facility would also have a CL3 containment lab to house highly infectious risk group 3 pathogens that may be transmitted by airborne route. Norlab worked with PCL on the design and budget support for Laboratory Furniture from Substantial design through 100% design.
Collaboration with Consultant team:
At the beginning of the substantial design PCL contacted Norlab to review client and consultant team design guides and provide design reports, typical furniture modules, budgetary pricing, and planning schedules. Collaboration of budgets and schedules continued through the final design phase, including final specification and block support.
Specified casework was mobile and required client specific electrical configurations including back up power. Custom cord management was created to manage umbilical services from the ceiling service panel to the mobile systems.
