Our firm has been working with the Southern Research Institute since 1989. Services provided include the design and documents for the original laboratory space of this contract research organization, which began as a toxicology vivarium facility but morphed into a CDC certified BSL-3 virology research laboratory with 24,000 sf of research space, plus 20,000 sf for principal investigators and tech support. Multiple projects have been completed for the organization over the years including upgrades to the existing vivarium; a central plant addition; SIV research fit-outs; BSL-3 automated virology research lab; BSL2 vivarium spaces for specific DOD contracts; and CDC upgrade. Our firm also provided design services for upgrades to the facility as part of a grant application. The design (pictured) featured a new addition with glass canopy, interior alterations, and mechanical equipment upgrades.
